Watching Excitons in Photoactive Organic Frameworks

Project description

Improved understanding of exciton dynamics could lead to higher-performance photoactive materials

Artificial photosynthesis could make a decisive contribution to the renewable energy source mix. Although technological advances have brought scientists closer to developing efficient light-harvesting platforms, the atomic-scale mechanisms remain poorly known. Despite great research efforts, there are still important questions unanswered because the extremely short-lived excited states, so-called excitons, are difficult to measure. The EU-funded WEPOF project will develop advanced microscopy methods to observe these excited states generated by light in covalent organic framework materials. Improved understanding of the excitonic processes will guide the design of photoactive materials with enhanced energy conversion efficiency.
