Three weeks ago I participated in a very nice Conference on Hybrid-Organic Photovoltaics (HOPV2010) in Assisi, Italy. Juan Bisquert, member of the Scientific Commitee, had asked me to organise a discussion panel on Carrier lifetime in bulk heterojunction solar cells. Indeed, a lively exchange of concepts and ideas between the panel – James Durrant, Germa Garcia Belmonte, Gytis Juska and myself – and the audience developed. I would like to thank the organisers, the panelists and the participants of this symposium once again: it was great! I am not sure if I will be able to summarise some of the discussion highlights here, considering that even this note took me 20 days… but I strive to improve;-)
Short note: my short review finally came online. Coauthors are Vladimir Dyakonov and Christoph Brabec. In case you have access to IEEE, find the paper here.
