Efficient energy transfer in molecular-nanocrystal hybrid

Grad student Alex Fast and Dima Fishman of Laser Spectroscopy Labs, in collaboration with Prof Tang from UC Riverside publish the study on efficiency of triplet energy transfer for molecular-nanocrystal system. It has been shown, that careful design of surface ligands to match the NC surface can maximize exciton delocalization between inorganic NCs and organic molecules. The use of bidentate ligands suggested a new approach in the design of ligands for nanocrystal surfaces to maximize charge or energy transfer across these hybrid surfaces. Such a system can increase drastically the efficiency of solar cells, and thus provide an inexpensive way to produce clean energy.
