Pentacene: PTCDI-C13H27 molecular blends efficiently harvest light for solar cell applications
Pandey, Ajay K., Dabos-Seignon, Sylvie, & Nunzi, Jean-Michel (2006) Pentacene: PTCDI-C13H27 molecular blends efficiently harvest light for solar cell applications. Applied Physics Letters, 89(11), Article number-113506.
Solar cells exhibiting efficient photon harvesting are built from molecular blends of pentacene: PTCDI-C13H27. Absorption of the composition spans the whole visible spectrum with an onset at 730 nm. External quantum efficiency approaches unity at the peak absorption of pentacene. A 2.0% power conversion efficiency is obtained under 80 mW cm-2 AM 1.5 illumination, with 8.6 mA cm-2 short-circuit current. The comparison with bilayer devices suggests directions of improvement in conversion efficiency such as controlled growth of the blend layers.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
