Organic Solar Cells More Efficient With Molecules Face-to-Face

by 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.

'Electron Spin' May Make Organic Solar Cells Competitive

by Vince Stricherz University of Washington News and Information Office
Researchers have discovered a synthetic, high-performance polymer that behaves differently from other tested materials and could make inexpensive, highly efficient organic solar panels a reality.
