  2. Organic Solar Cells Are More Productive With Molecules Face-to-Face

    Tracey Peake, 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 ...
