Title: Nanostructured materials for solar energy conversion - the primary steps for light to charge
Date: Mon Nov 24, 2008

Nanostructured organic materials are being explored for application in photovoltaic solar energy conversion. Light harvesting, energy transport, charge photogeneration and recombination, charge transport are the elementary processes accounting for the conversion of light energy into useful charge carriers. We show how a combination of time resolved spectroscopies covering the time scales from femtoseconds to milliseconds and spectral range from uv to far infrared (THz frequencies) is a powerful tool to study the light induced processes and provide mechanistic information valuable for design of novel or optimized materials.
