fast-moving electrons create current in organic solar cells

an exciton (electron-hole pair) formed at the interface between tetracene molecules (an organic semiconductor) and single-layer ws2 (an inorganic semiconductor). dissociation of such interfacial excitons is necessary for the function of organic solar cells. credit: purdue universityresearchers at purdue university have identified the mechanism that allows organic solar cells to create a charge, solving a longstanding puzzle in physics, according to a paper published friday (jan. 12) in the journal science advances. organic solar cells are built with soft molecules, while inorganic solar cells, often silicon-based, are built with more rigid materials. silicon cells currently dominate the industry, but they're expensive and stiff, while org...
