Entanglement at heart of '2-for-1' fission in next-generation solar cells
Cambridge, UK (SPX) Oct 28, 2015
An international team of scientists have observed how a mysterious quantum phenomenon in organic molecules takes place in real time, which could aid in the development of highly efficient solar cells. The researchers, led by the University of Cambridge, used ultrafast laser pulses to observe how a single particle of light, or photon, can be converted into two energetically excited particles, known as spin-triplet excitons, through a process called singlet fission. If the process of singlet fission ... read more
