Organic Solar Cells More Productive With Molecules Face-to-Face
2014-04-08 13:25:29

Tracey Peake, North Carolina State University New research from North Carolina State University and UNC-Chapel Hill reveals that energy is transferred more efficiently inside of complex, three-dimensional organic solar cells when the donor molecules align face-on, rather than edge-on, relative to the acceptor. This finding may aid in the design and manufacture of more efficient and economically viable organic solar cell technology. Organic solar cell efficiency depends upon the ease...
