Devices with Type-I alignment represent a novel photovoltaic architecture. A type-I alignment leads to the possibility of enhanced carrier extraction and in general synergies between the respective materials qualities (e.g. carrier multiplication for Si NCs and exceptional transport for perovskites). The atypical band alignment forming a type-I heterojunction has not been predominantly utilized and is believed to represent a novel approach to the wider family of QD solar cell device architectures.(Nano Energy 50, 2018, 245–255).
