Mapping the energetic landscape of solar cells

Heidelberg University physicists develop new spectroscopic method A new spectroscopic method now makes it possible to measure and visualise the energetic landscape inside solar cells based on organic materials. It was developed by a research team led by Prof. Dr Yana Vaynzof, a physicist at Heidelberg University. This novel visualisation technique enables scientists to study the physical principles of organic photovoltaics with extreme precision and to better understand processes such as energetic losses. “Mapping our Earth’s landscapes was a necessary step for understanding the movement patterns and dynamics of people, animals and water, among other examples”, explains Prof. Vaynzof, research group leader at the Kirchhoff Institute for Physics at Heidelberg University. “Similarly, the movement of electric charges in a solar cell is determined by the energetic landscape within the device.” Until now, visualising these energetic landscapes was so challenging that only rough esti
