Energy conversion efficiency for solar cells is generally limited by the Shockley-Queisser limit . One way to circumvent this limit is through the use of organic photovoltaics (OPV), where specific charge and energy transfer processes can lead to higher conversion efficiencies. Polyaromatic hydrocarbons such as oligoacene molecules exhibit interesting quantum effects such as singlet fission, triplet-triplet annihilation, or superradiance and make promising candidates for OPV applications. Recently anthracene, tetracene and pentacene molecules adhered to the surface of neon clusters have been shown to provide interesting model systems for detailed studies of such effects . We want to extend these measurements by spectroscopy of oligoacenes deposited to the surface of argon clusters.
