Title: High Efficiency Quantum Dot Solar Cells Based on Multiple Exciton Generation

Abstract

The objective of this project was to demonstrate that efficient multiple exciton generation observed in quantum dot materials could be harvested in nanostructured solar cells to dramatically improve the maximum power efficiency obtainable in photovoltaic modules. This proposal aimed to develop a high efficiency solar cell through a combination of quantum dot materials, nanostructured surfaces and atomic layer deposition for fabricating conformal and ultrathin films.
