Abstract
The pure versatility and ease of CuAAC based layer-by-layer fabrication of the two different panchromatic films implicates the potential for this technique to be used to create light harvesting arrays for molecular based solar cells. The versatility of this technique allows other dye systems to be studied. The simple process can easily be scaled to larger surface area depositions for global scale production.
