Supercomputers have been guiding materials discovery for the creation of more efficient organic solar cells. By combining quantum-mechanical simulations with machine learning and data science, this project will harness exascale power to revolutionize the process of photovoltaic design and advance physical understanding of singlet fission, the phenomenon whereby one photogenerated singlet exciton is converted into two triplet excitons—increasing the electricity produced.
