Paper Abstract

The mechanisms responsible for the electron transfer generation in nature and in techniques are still unclear and under discussion. This paper deals with the problem of photogenerated electron transfer which occurs from photoexcited dye molecule to the semiconducting thin layer. Quantum approach for description of electron transfer process between semiconductor and synthetic dye layers in the hamiltonian formalism has been used. It has been shown that the electron transfer process can be treated as energy transfer between two harmonic oscillators. Theoretical model under consideration provides an idea of energetical conditions require for the effective photoinduced electron transfer in electronic devices.
