Dye Sensitized Solar Cells: Advances in Research and Development | Chapter 08 | New Advances in Materials Science and Engineering Vol. 1

This book chapter describes the production of dye sensitized solar cell by using different types of photo electrodes. This type of solar cell has been widely employed due to some unique properties such as high absorbance coefficient, chemical stability and electrochemical activity at nanoscale. Here, various types of adsorbing materials such as TiO2, ZnO, NiO, CuO and tin oxide were highlighted. Summary of cell components of dye sensitized solar cells with their photovoltaic characteristics were reported also. The power conversion efficiency of more than 10% was obtained for dye sensitized solar cells based on literature.
