“Photocurrent enhancement in hybrid nanocrystal quantum dot/p-i-n photovoltaic devices”  

Physical Review Letters, 102, 077402 (2009) 
Abstract:We fabricate a hybrid nanocrystal quantum-dot patterned p-i-n structure that utilizes nonradiative energy transfer from highly absorbing colloidal nanocrystal quantum dots to a patterned semiconductor slab to demonstrate a sixfold increase of the photocurrent conversion efficiency compared to the bare p-i-n semiconductor device.
