Title:
Enhanced solar light absorption of graphene by interaction with anisole

Kahaly, M. Upadhyay; Schwingenschlögl, Udo ( 0000-0003-4179-7231 )
Abstract:
We study suspended graphene in contact with the organic molecule anisole to analyse the implications of the interaction for the optical absorption, using first principle calculations. Because of a weak interaction multiple orientations of the molecule with respect to the graphene sheet are possible. A substantial enhancement of the optical absorption independent of the specific orientation is observed, which is promising for energy harvesting. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
