Hannah and Alex's paper on ultrafast 'endothermic' singlet fission is published in Nature Chemistry.

For almost 50 years the mechanism of 'endothermic' singlet fission has remained mysterious. Hannah and Alex's work demonstrate for the first time, that the entangled TT state mediating this process is formed on sub 500fs timescales from the photongenerated singlet exciton and is later thermally activated to form free triplets. This is a major breakthrough in our understanding of singlet fission and paves the way for the design of the next generation of materials for PVs.
