Enhancing photocurrent efficiencies by resonance energy transfer in CdTe quantum dot multilayers: Towards rainbow solar cells

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The impact of Förster resonant energy transfer (FRET) in CdTe quantum dot (QD) based photoelectrochemical cells is investigated. By deposition of different CdTe QD sizes onto indium on oxide electrodes, FRET across the photoactive film could be obtained, resulting in a 25% enhancement of the photon-to-current efficiency when compared to reference systems that lack FRET.
