A key factor in natural photosynthesis, solar fuels, and photovoltaic cells is how to control photoinduced charge separation and recombination in donor-acceptor systems. This talk highlights photoinduced electron transfer in donor-acceptor linked molecules, dye-sensitized solar cells, and bulk heterojunction solar cells for energy and biological applications. The research initiatives, “Dynamic Exciton: Emerging Science and Innovation,” focus on manipulating charge-transfer states for energy conversion.
