Novel optical pump-push – photocurrent probe ultrafast spectroscopy experiments on organic photoconversion systems show that excessive excitation energy in such systems is not lost but used to reach delocalised states that act as the gateway for long-range charge separation. We also show that the developed experimental approach can be generalised to inorganic and hybrid photoconversion systems.
