9 Applications to Solar Energy Conversion Systems

This chapter presents expected applications of molecular layer deposition (MLD) and related thin-film organic photonic/electronic materials to solar energy conversion systems. Applications to photosynthesis devices are also discussed.

9.1 Sensitized Photovoltaic Devices

We propose multidye sensitization and polymer-MQD (multiple quantum dot) sensitization for photovoltaic devices. In the former, the sensitizing layer consists of molecular wires in which a plurality of kinds of dye molecules are stacked with designated sequences by liquid-phase MLD. In the latter, the sensitizing layer consists of polymer MQDs grown by gas-phase MLD. We also propose waveguide-type photovoltaic devices, which ...
