PORPHYRIN-BASED SUPRAMOLECULAR ASSEMBLIES AND ARRAYS II: MODEL SYSTEMS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF PHOTOSYNTHETIC MIMICS AND DEVICES
Grant number: DP0556313
Solar cells that convert light to electricity are an excellent solution to bringing energy to remote locations with abundant sunlight. This research proposal aims to provide an intellectual grounding in the development of molecular systems and supramolecular arrays that are capable of such solar energy conversion (photovoltaics & artificial photosynthesis) or that have potential applications in photonics. Developments in this project may also lead to breakthroughs in areas such as nano-scale computing and cleaner and more sustainable energy production.
