Abstract
A complete characterization of solar energy conversion devices and the processes underlying their function is a challenge, and require a multitude of different experimental methods. This chapter discusses investigations of molecular solar cells and solar fuels devices by time-resolved laser spectroscopic methods. These methods have established important concepts we now use for understanding the function of devices for solar energy conversion into primary products. We give examples of scientific insight provided by ultrafast methods using detection in the regions from X-ray to THz radiation, and particularly highlight the case where the use of different methods has provided complementary information. Charge collection and solar fuel... (More)

Charge collection and solar fuel catalysis on the other hand occur on longer time scales, which opens for the use of time-resolved magnetic resonance and microwave conductivity methods. We also point out that, with suitable precautions, time-resolved laser spectroscopy is able to give information relevant for in operando device conditions (Less)
