Investigation of charge-transfer dynamics in organic materials for solar cells

Abstract:

This thesis improves our understanding of the charge-transfer dynamics in organic materials employed in dye-sensitized and nanotube-thiophene solar cells. For the purpose of this work, a femtosecond transient absorption spectroscopy setup was built. Additionally, microsecond transient absorption spectroscopy was utilised to explore dynamics on a longer time-scale.

In the first study, the dependence of dye regeneration and charge collection on the pore- filling fraction (PFF) in soli...
