Enhancing the power conversion efficiency of dye-sensitized solar cells via molecular plasmon-like excitations

Author affiliations

Abstract

We introduce a tactic for employing molecular plasmon-like excitations to enhance solar-to-electric power conversion efficiency of dye-sensitized solar cells. We offer general design principles of dimeric dyes, in which a strong plasmonic interaction between two π-conjugated moieties is promoted. The π-stacked conformations of these dimeric dyes result in a desirable broadened absorption and a longer absorption onset wavelength.
