Boosting Hot-Electron Generation: Exciton Dissociation at the Order-Disorder Interfaces in Polymeric Photocatalysts.


Excitonic effects, arising from the Coulomb interactions between photogenerated electrons and holes, dominate the optical excitation properties of semiconductors, whereas their influences on photocatalytic processes have seldom been discussed. In view of the competitive generation of excitons and hot carriers, exciton dissociation is proposed as an… (More)
