New Research Could Boost Organic Solar Cells - Solar Industry

Although there is a growing market for organic solar cells ­­- they contain materials that are cheaper, more abundant, and more environmentally friendly than those used in typical solar panels – they also tend to be less efficient in converting sunlight to electricity than conventional solar cells, according to the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab ). Now, scientists who are members of the Center for Computational Study of Excited-State Phenomena in Energy Materials (C2SEPEM ), a new energy materials-related science center based at Berkeley Lab, say they have solved a mystery that could lead to gains in efficiency. According to the national lab, the team pinpointed the source of an ultrafast and efficient process that spawns several carriers of electrical charge from a single particle of light in organic crystals that are...
