Singlet fission (SF) has the potential to significantly enhance the photocurrent in single junction solar cells and thus raise the power conversion efficiency from the Shockley-Queisser limit of 33% to 44%. Until now, quantitative SF yield at room temperature has only been observed in crystalline solids or aggregates of oligoacenes.
This talk will discuss our group’s recent efforts towards intermolecular singlet fission in dimerized pentacenes, as well as structure property relationships and design rules that we have discovered.
