The authors demonstrate the incorporation of an artificial, extrinsic antenna into organic, conjugated polymer layers. This can lead to the independent optimization of spectral and spatial cross section for light absorption in organic solar devices. They report studies of three antenna layers, anthracene, 9,10-dichloroanthracene, and 9,10-diphenylanthracene, that are spin coated onto a poly[2-methoxy,5-(2methyl hexoxy)-1,4-phenylenevinylene] thin film.
