Electronic Structure and Excited-State Dynamics at Donor-Acceptor Interfaces
Organic photovoltaic cells rely upon molecular interfaces to separate charge. Efficient charge separation depends molecular structure and electronic band alignment across donor-acceptor interfaces. Correlation of molecular structure determined with scanning tunneling microscopy and interfacial electronic structure measured with one- and two-photon photoemission techniques allows determination of the factors that control the efficacy of charge separation.
