Organic Chromophores for Optoelectronic Devices
Thursday, April 3, 2014
Molecular and polymeric organic materials are promising replacements for inorganic semiconductors in photovoltaic cells due to their large absorption coefficients and easy processing and deposition procedures. Non-traditional nanostructured devices on inexpensive and arbitrary substrates can be fabricated using organic materials, leading to vanishingly low module costs. Recent highlights in incorporating organic chromophores into photovoltaics devices of varying architectures will be discussed.
