The need to address the energy problem and formulating lasting solution to tame climate change have never been so urgent since the last few years. The rise of different renewable energy sources, e.g. solar cell technologies, have given humanity a glimpse of hope that can, at the very least, delay the catastrophic effects of these problems after decades of neglect. This review volume provides in-depth discussion of the fundamental photo physical processes as well as state-of-the-art device engineering of different emerging photovoltaic technologies. The photovoltaic technologies that will be highlighted in this review volume includes organic (fullerene, non-fullerene and ternary) solar cells, dye sensitized (ruthenium, iron and quantum dot) solar cells, and hybrid metal-halide perovskite solar cells.

About the Editor

Carl Ponseca has been investigating ultrafast photo physical processes in different emerging photovoltaic materials in the past several years. Primarily using time-resolved terahertz (THz) spectroscopy, he published many peer-reviewed papers on early-time charge carrier dynamics of organic, inorganic, dye- and quantum dot-sensitized, and perovskite-based solar cells.
