Organic photovoltaics have the potential to become an accessible form of alternative energy production because of their ease of manufacture via traditional printing techniques and consequent low cost.1 However, the simplicity of device manufacture belies the complex cascade of processes that allow light to be efficiently converted into electrical power.2 Electron transfer (ET) events constitute the most critical steps. ET is known to be governed by a complex function of many system-specific variables including distance, orientation, and energetics of the donor and acceptor species.3
