Armantas Melianas received his PhD from Linköping University (Sweden) in 2017 for his work on time-resolved charge motion in organic solar cells. He joined Stanford on October 2017 as a recipient of the prestigious Wallenberg Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship and is currently working on brain-like computing applications using organic semiconductors.

                       

Quantum Tunneling Between Distant Molecules Aids Energy Harvesting In Organic Solar Cells

Organic materials, such as semiconducting molecules and polymers, can be exploited in functional electronic devices, such as organic solar cells, which offer a promising alternative to conventional photovoltaic technology. One of the appealing features of organic solar modules is that they can be manufactured by roll‑to‑roll printing from ink based solutions, similar to the way newspapers are printed today, enabling the rapid and low-cost production of large area photovoltaics. These modules are flexible and lightweight, and their color can be...
