SINGLE CRYSTAL FULLERENE PHOTOELECTROCHEMICAL SOLAR CELLS Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Fullerene solar cells are demonstrated. The photoelectrochemistry of single crystal fullerene and a fullerene photoelectrochemical solar cell are studied Utilization of a single crystal, rather than a polycrystalline film, of fullerene decreases dark current to the extent that light driven charge transfer dominates. Utilization of a photoelectrochemical solid/liquid junction, rather than solid state photovoltaic junction, improves the observed photocurrent. Illuminated, immersed, fullerene is shown to drive oxidation of several solution phase …
