  1. 1. Accumulative Charge Separation in Photocatalysis From Molecules to Nanoparticles

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mariia Pavliuk; Jacinto Sá; Leif Hammarström; Gary Brudvig; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Accumulative charge separation; Electron transfer; Plasmon dynamics; Time-resolved spectroscopy; Photocatalysis.; Chemistry with specialization in Physical Chemistry; Kemi med inriktning mot fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : Photochemical energy conversion into solar fuel involves steps of light absorption, charge separation and catalysis. Nature has taught us that the effective accumulation of redox equivalents and charge separation are the key steps in sunlight conversion. READ MORE

  2. 2. Dynamics of Excitation Transfer and Charge Separation in Polymeric Semiconductors

    University dissertation from Arvydas Ruseckas, Chemical Physics, Chemical Center, Lund University

    Author : Arvydas Ruseckas; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Anisotropy; Photoinduced absorption; Femtosecond spectroscopy; Polythiophene; Conjugated polymers; Donor-Acceptor Complexes; Carbazole; Charge separation; Excitation transfer; Recombination; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Dynamics of optically excited electronic states have been studied in solid films and solutions of semiconducting polymers and model compounds. Transient absorption, monitored in the spectral range from 0.9 eV to 2.5 eV with a time resolution of about 100 fs, was the main experimental technique. READ MORE

  3. 3. Theoretical perspectives on ultrafast and non-linear spectroscopy

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Physics

    Author : Emil Vinas Boström; [2018-05-07]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Non-linear optics; Ultrafast dynamics; Non-equilibrium Green s functions; Density functional theory; Multi-photon absorption; Second harmonic generation; Desorption dynamics; Auger decay; Charge-separation dynamics; Quantum Zeno effect; Fysicumarkivet A:2018:Vinas Boström;

    Abstract : In this thesis we discuss a theoretical description of ultrafast and non-linear spectroscopy. Due to the high intensities and ultrashort pulse durations involved in such experiments, it is necessary to use an explicitly time-dependent formalism. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exploring Electron Transfer Dynamics of Novel Dye Sensitized Photocathodes Towards Solar Cells and Solar Fuels

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lei Zhang; Leif Hammarström; Yiying Wu; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Electron transfer; Laser spectroscopy; Femtosecond spectroscopy; Transient absorption; NiO; DSSCs; DSSFDs; Charge separation; Solar energy conversion; Nanosecond photolysis; Photophysics; Kemi med inriktning mot kemisk fysik; Chemistry with specialization in Chemical Physics;

    Abstract : The design of dyes for NiO-based dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) has drawn attention owing to their potential applications in photocatalysis and because they are indispensable for the development of tandem dye-sensitized solar cells. The understanding of the electron transfer mechanisms and dynamics is beneficial to guide further dye design and further improve the performance of photocathode in solar cells and solar fuel devices.
