Abstract/Description: Triplet-triplet annihilation photon upconversion (TTA-UC) allows for the conversion of two low energy photons into a higher energy state and can therefore be utilized to improve the efficiency of solar cell devices. TTA-UC allows for the increased efficiency because a large portion of the solar spectrum remains unabsorbed by solar devices. The use of an osmium sensitizer has allowed for the upconversion of near-IR to visible light in solution, but not yet on the surface. We explore the use of an osmium sensitizer with perylene diimide acceptors in a self-assembled bilayer device utilizing TTA-UC.
