Singlet Fission Holds Two-for-One Potential in Solar Cells (Fact Sheet)

    Research output: NRELFact Sheet


    NREL scientists have confirmed the first molecular compound specifically designed to exhibit multiple-exciton generation through singlet fission - in effect, producing two electrons for every one photon absorbed by the compound. And in related work, NREL has reported the first proven instance of multiple-exciton generation in an operating quantum-dot solar cell.
