Final Report - SOLARPAT (Self-nanostructuring polymer solar cells)

Project ID: 236566
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

This document is an attachment to the final report of the SOLARPAT project, which was funded under the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). SOLARPAT aimed to theoretically demonstrate that the radiative lifetime of excitons in typical solar cell geometries could increase or decrease by orders of magnitude depending on the orientation of the exciton. Based on this finding, the project investigated new design considerations for controlling exciton recombination. The obtained results could have a significant scientific and technical impact in the sector of nanostructuring polymer solar cells. The document includes two diagrams of the wavelength versus the observed fluorescence and absorption in an attempt to depict the innovations that were developed during SOLARPAT execution.
