Benzoic acid surface functionalization of conduction band engineered Zn1-xMgxO layers for enhanced organic/inorganic photovoltaics
Increasing the efficiency of organic/inorganic photovoltaics will open the door to a cheap, easy, and safe means to bring solar energy to the masses. A key role in raising this efficiency is by maximizing the band gap offset between donor HOMO and acceptor conduction band. Organic/inorganic photovoltaics are excitonic devices; they create an electric current by splitting an exciton produced in a donor layer whose electron is transferred from the donor to an acceptor, which then pushes the electron through to a conducting surface, producing a current. The efficiencies of these cells are extremely ...
