Charge transfer in organic molecules for solar cells: theoretical perspective
- 化学化工－已发表论文 
This tutorial review primarily illustrates rate theories for charge transfer and separation in organic molecules for solar cells. Starting from the Fermi's golden rule for weak electronic coupling, we display the microcanonical and canonical rates, as well as the relationship with the Marcus formula. The fluctuation effect of bridges on the rate is further emphasized. Then, several rate approaches beyond the perturbation limit are revealed. Finally, we discuss the electronic structure theory for calculations of the electronic coupling and reorganization energy that are two key parameters in charge transfer, and show several applications.
