Enhancing the power conversion efficiency of dye-sensitized solar cells via molecular plasmon-like excitations

A tactic for employing molecular plasmons to enhance solar-to-electric power conversion efficiency of dye-sensitized solar cells is introduced. We offer general design principles of dimeric dyes in which a strong plasmonic interaction between two π-conjugated moieties is promoted, resulting in a desirable broadened absorption and longer absorption onset wavelength.
