ABSTRACT
We demonstrate a cascade-energy-level alignment based organic photovoltaic cell by using stacking three materials with appropriate energy levels. A cell with a structure of ITO/4,4′,4″-tris[N,(3-methylphenyl)-N-phenylamino]-triphenylamine (m-MTDATA)/copper phthalocyanine (CuPc)/fullerene (C60)/4,4′-N,N′-dicarubreneazolebiphenyl (BCP)/LiF/Al was shown to have a power efficiency enhancement in more than 30% over that of a standard reference cell (ITO/CuPc/C60/BCP/LiF/Al), which has only one exciton-dissociation interface. The efficiency improvement was mainly ascribed to the ingenious cascade-energy-level alignment and the application of the bipolar carrier transporting property.

    We further examine the semiclassical approach for treating tunneling within classical trajectory simulations by applying it to the dissociation of HN[sub 2] and DN[sub 2]. The calculated level widths of vibrational states are in good accord with the corresponding quantum-mechanical results for a...

    The electrostatic V+(OCO) complex has a vibrationally resolved photodissociation spectrum in the visible. Photodissociation produces V++CO2 (nonreactive pathway) and VO++CO (reactive pathway). Production of VO+ is energetically favored, but spin forbidden. One-photon dissociation studies confirm...
