Researchers at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) have discovered a novel material system that would revolutionize the future development of Organic Solar Cells (OSCs). OSCs based on this new material system have demonstrated ultrafast and efficient charge separation, despite a nearly zero charge separation driving force, meaning that the more environmentally-friendly OSCs may be able to perform as good as inorganic solar cells in the future.


The breakthrough, discovered by a research team led by Prof. Henry He YAN from the Department of Chemistry, was published in Nature Energy in June. Read More...
