Nucleic Acid-based Photovoltaic Cell
Photovoltaic cells containing nucleic acid materials and methods of production and use are provided. The nucleic acid materials have photovoltaic donor and acceptor molecules incorporated therein and define a spatial organization and orientation for these molecules that inhibits recombination of excitons and promotes efficiency in the photovoltaic cell. Preferred nucleic acid materials contain nucleic acid molecules complexed with ionic surfactants and are in the form of films, fibers, nanofibers, or non-woven meshes.
