The radiative recombination of electron–hole pairs represents a great challenge to the photon-to-charge efficiency in photocell. In this paper, we visit the radiative recombination rate (RRR) in a quantum photocell with or without three dipole–dipole coupled electron donors. The results show that different gaps play the same roles while the ambient temperatures play different roles in the suppressed RRR with or without three dipole–dipole coupled electron donors. What’s more, the dipole–dipole coupling strength can greatly inhibit the RRRs with three dipole–dipole coupled electron donors, which indicates the quantum coherence generated by three coupled donors is an efficient approach to suppress RRR, and it is different from the quantum coherence mentioned by Marlan O. Scully [PRL 104, 207701 (2010)]. This presented scheme may propose some regulating strategies for efficient conversion efficiency via the suppressed RRR.
