Chemical Engineering in the Electronics Industry: Progress Towards the Rational Design of Organic Semiconductor Heterojunctions
Design of the heterojunction in all-organic solar cells is a critical aspect of understanding and controlling charge transport characteristics. The use of multiscale computational approaches has an important role to play in heterojunction design. Ordered heterojunctions offer promising routes to finesse issues that impede charge transport in bulk heterojunctions. The future is likely to lay in the development of multi-junction devices where computational insight is likely to help guide experimental searches for optimal interface design.
