Title: Ultrafast interligand electron transfer in cis -[Ru(4,4′-dicarboxylate-2,2′-bipyridine) 2 (NCS) 2 ] 4− and implications for electron injection limitations in dye sensitized solar cells

Abstract

Using IR absorption anisotropy, interligand energy transfer in N712 is shown to occur on a sub-ps time scale, and is thus unlikely to limit injection in DSSCs.
