It is demonstrated how the laser-induced Time-Resolved Microwave Conductivity Technique can be used to determine the singlet or triplet exciton diffusion length in organic dye layers, as well as the efficiency for electron injection into a semiconductor. Knowledge of these processes is of prime importance for optimization of (nanostructured) hybrid photovoltaics.
