Abstract

A proof-of-concept for the fabrication of genetically customizable biogenic materials for photovoltaic applications is presented. E. coli is first genetically engineered to heterologously express the carotenoid biosynthetic pathway from plants. This modification yields a strain that overproduces the photoactive pigment lycopene. The pigment-producing cells are then coated with TiO2 nanoparticles via a tryptophan-mediated supramolecular interface, and subsequent incorporation of the resulting biogenic material (cells@TiO2 ) as an anode in an I- /I3- -based dye-sensitized solar cell yields an excellent photovoltaic (PV) response. This work lays strong foundations for the development of bio-PV materials and next-generation organic optoelectronics that are green, inexpensive, and easy to manufacture.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 562. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 31 March 2022.
All research outputs
#41,521
of 25,107,281 outputs
Outputs from Small
#5
of 8,450 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#934
of 337,565 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Small
#3
of 124 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 25,107,281 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 99th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 8,450 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.6. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 337,565 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 124 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 98% of its contemporaries.
