Biomimetic Dye Aggregate Solar Cells (Springer Theses) by Peter L. Marek

By Peter L. Marek

This thesis describes a brand new method of the development of solar cells. Following nature's instance, this technique has the objective to discover a biomimetic self-assembling dye, whose aggregates can mimic the average light-harvesting procedure of distinct photosynthetic energetic micro organism. The thesis investigates how to keep an eye on the self-assembly such that appropriate dye aggregates are shaped with excessive inner order and size-confinement. The dye aggregates will be applied right into a new form of solar cells, designed to mix some great benefits of hybrid sunlight cells and solid-state dye-sensitized sunlight cells (ss-DSSCs): dye mixture sun cells (DASCs). This ebook describes the development and primary checks of a prototype for DASCs at the foundation of the investigated dye aggregates. The defined technique has the virtue that it'll allow to accumulate a light-harvesting method totally synthetically in huge scale on the way to discover reasonably cheap, lightweight and environmentally pleasant sunlight cells - a necessary target in the direction of the exploitation of fresh power from sunlight.
