Developed for use in energy harvesting, the device works in aphotovoltaic mode when the lighting conditions are good and works as athermoelectric generator when the amount of light is not enough but thetemperature difference can be utilized. The generator was developed bywiring multiple pairs of n-type organic semiconductors and a p-typesemiconductors.
