10 Solution-processed infrared quantum dot solar cells

Jiang Tang and Edward H. Sargent

Colloidal quantum dots (CQDs) are solution-processed semiconductors of interest in low-cost photovoltaics. Tuning of the bandgap of CQD films via the quantum size effect enables customization of solar cell's absorption profile to match the sun's broad visible- and infrared-containing spectrum reaching the earth. Here we review progress in the realization of low-cost, efficient solar cells based on CQDs. We focus in particular on CQD materials and approaches that provide both infrared and ...
