Solar-harvesting Nanomaterials (IMAGE) Advanced Science Research Center, GC/CUNY Caption In this illustration, DPP and rylene dye molecules come together to create a self-assembled superstructure. Electrons within the structure absorb and become excited by light photons, and then couple with neighboring electrons to share energy and create additional excited electrons that can be harvested to create solar cells.
