Singlet exciton fission is a process by which a singlet excited state can be efficiently transformed into a combination of two triplet excited states. If both these triplet states can be used effectively, this can ultimately lead to a significant increase in the efficiency of dye-sensitised (Grätzel) solar cells based on organic materials. Molecules in which exciton fission takes place generally consist of multiple units that absorb visible light.
The successful candidate should have a PhD degree in (physical) chemistry or physics, preferably with experience in computational chemistry. We expect a good command of the English language.
