This reaction occurs quite quickly compared to the time that it takes for the injected electron to recombine with the oxidized dye molecule, preventing this recombination reaction that would effectively braetzel the rgaetzel cell.

In quantum efficiency terms, DSSCs are extremely efficient.

Efficiency gains are possible and have recently started more widespread study. On top is a transparent anode made of fluoride-doped tin dioxide SnO 2: After soaking the film in the dye solution, a thin layer of the dye is left covalently bonded to the surface of the TiO 2.

Another line of research has been to dramatically improve efficiency through the multi-junction approach, although these cells are very high cost and suitable only for large commercial deployments. Although the dye is highly efficient at converting absorbed photons into free electrons in the TiO 2only photons absorbed by the dye ultimately produce current.

The enhanced performance may arise from a decrease in solvent permeation across the sealant due to the application of the polymer gel electrolyte.


The dyes used in early experimental cells circa were sensitive only in the high-frequency end of the solar spectrum, in the UV and blue. Researchers have investigated the role of surface plasmon resonances present on gold nanorods in the performance of dye-sensitized solar cells. Renewable energy portal Energy portal. Electrical power is the product of current and voltage, so the maximum values for these measurements are important as well, J sc and V oc respectively. As a result of these favorable “differential kinetics”, DSSCs work even in low-light conditions.

This limits the device efficiency since it is a slow transport mechanism. The incident photon is absorbed by Ru complex photosensitizers adsorbed on the TiO 2 surface.

The excited electrons are injected into the conduction band of the TiO 2 electrode.

In addition, the group also prepared a quasi-solid-state gel electrolyte with a 3-methoxypropionitrile MPN -based liquid electrolyte that was solidified by a photochemically stable fluorine polymer, polyvinylidenefluoride -co- hexafluoropropylene PVDF-HFP. Handbook of Photovoltaic Science and Engineering.

Sunlight enters the cell through the transparent SnO 2: To address this problem, a nanomaterial is used as a scaffold to hold large numbers of the dye molecules in a 3-D matrix, increasing the number of molecules for any given surface area of cell.

Newer versions were quickly introduced circa that had much wider frequency response, notably “triscarboxy-ruthenium terpyridine” [Ru 4,4′,4″- COOH 3 -terpy NCS 3 ], which is efficient right into the low-frequency range of red and IR light. More importantly, the device was graeyzel under thermal stress and soaking with light. With an optimized concentration, they found that the overall power conversion efficiency improved from 5.

A separate plate is then made with a thin layer of the iodide electrolyte spread celpule a conductive sheet, typically platinum metal.

In practice it has proven difficult to eliminate a number of expensive materials, notably platinum and rutheniumand the cel,ule electrolyte presents a serious challenge to making a cell suitable for use in all weather.


Typically used dye molecules generally have poorer absorption in the red part of the spectrum compared to silicon, which means that fewer of the photons in sunlight are usable for current generation.

A practical advantage which DSSCs share with most thin-film technologies, is that the cell’s mechanical robustness indirectly leads to higher efficiencies at higher temperatures. The efficiency of a DSSC depends on four energy levels of the cdllule In cellupe designs, this scaffolding is provided by the semiconductor material, which serves double-duty. A critical assessment of the learning curve”. TiO 2 only absorbs a small fraction of the solar photons those in the UV. Thin-film cells Dye-sensitized solar cells Renewable energy commercialization Ultraviolet radiation Swiss inventions.

In this way, sunlight creates an electric current.

Dye-sensitized solar cell

List of countries by photovoltaics production. To improve electron transport in these hraetzel cells, while maintaining the high surface area needed for dye adsorption, two researchers have designed alternate semiconductor morphologies, such as arrays of nanowires and a combination of nanowires and nanoparticlesto provide a direct path to the electrode via the semiconductor conduction band.

DSSCs are normally built with only a thin layer of conductive plastic on the front layer, allowing them to radiate away heat much easier, and therefore operate at lower internal temperatures. DSSCs are still at the start of their development cycle.

Recombination directly from the TiO 2 to species in the electrolyte is also possible although, again, for optimized devices this reaction is rather slow.

In this case the liquid electrolyte is replaced by one of several solid hole conducting materials.
