12 March 2012 Charge separation dynamics at inorganic/organic nanostructured hybrid photovoltaic interfaces

A new Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) concept for a multichromophoric organic sensitizer in a dye-sensitized solar cell is presented based on a phenyl base body that accommodates the separately linked donor and acceptor moieties. The whole assembly is attached to the surface of a ZnO nanorod electrode via a carboxylic anchor group. FRET activity was demonstrated with UV-VIS measurements, and the charge separation dynamics at the inorganic/organic interface were analyzed with fs transient absorption and terahertz pump/probe for the precursors and fully assembled FRET units.
