Abstract

A minimal quantum mechanical model for efficient molecular capture of photon energy is presented. The model is constructed from a bright electronic state which is accessed by a photoinduced transition from the ground state and an acceptor excited state which stores the photoenergy. The model permits rational design of the bright and acceptor electronic states to improve the capture of solar energy. The main design factors are analyzed through examples.
