Brief description This project will build novel, highly efficient electrodes using a nanostructured layer approach. The layers will be made of chirally-selected carbon nanotubes, conducting polymers and charge carrier blocking layers and provide tunable energy pathways for electrons and holes. The project will probe these pathways to understand carrier lifetimes and how charge is transported from one layer to the next ultimately leading to an ability tune electrodes such that matched “downhill” energetic pathways exist leading to unprecedented charge carrying capability. The electrode properties can be tuned with the selection of the layer materials and will find applications in fields ranging from photovoltaics to sensors to electronics.
