Abstract

Solar energy is the most abundant renewable energy source available. Conversion of light into electricity and chemical energy are the two major paths for solar energy conversion. Nanostructured organic and hybrid materials are being explored for applications in photovoltaic solar energy conversion, as well as photocatalysis for solar fuel generation. Light harvesting, energy transport, charge photogeneration and recombination, charge transport are the elementary processes accounting for the conversion of light energy into useful charge carriers. We show how a combination of time resolved spectroscopy, with a focus on TR-THz spectroscopy, covering the time scales from femtoseconds to milliseconds is a powerful tool to study the light...
