Abstract:

This grant enabled the acquisition of equipment for the fabrication of organic and nanocrystal based photovoltaic PV devices by creating rationally designed organic-inorganic hybrid systems that exploit the unique multi-excitonic properties of both types of materials. A suite of equipment associated with electronic spectroscopy and PV device fabrication and characterization was acquired. For spectroscopy, NIR laser diodes and a camera capable of ultrafast photoluminescence in the near infra-red NIR was procured. For PV fabrication, a glovebox with thermal evaporators and a spin-coater was constructed. In order to characterize PV devices, a solar-simulator, semiconductor parameter analyzer and associated components to measure current density-voltage curves, external and internal quantum efficiencies were obtained.
