Abstract: In this paper, we review the microscopic process underlying PV conversion in exciton solar cells and review computational methods to study ESCs. Numerical modelling and coordinated multiscale materials modelling (MMM) are presented in this paper, which can help us to find new materials, optimal values of technological parameters, optimise the structure and maximise the efficiency of PV solar cells.

Keywords: exciton solar cells; solar cells efficiency; multiscale materials modelling of solar cells; photovoltaic.
