The dyes used in early experimental cells circa were sensitive only in the high-frequency end of the solar spectrum, in the Clelule and blue. No discernible performance decrease was observed. By Science News Staff Dec. In the case of silicon, the majority of visible light from red to violet has sufficient energy to make this happen.

HR Free format text: Normally the silicon acts as both the source of photoelectrons, as well as providing the electric field to separate the charges and create a current. TiO 2 is a poor light absorber, however. Retrieved on 6 January ES Free format text: A safe bet for the future”.

FR Free format text: TiO 2for instance, is already widely used as a paint base. These results are well within the limit for that of traditional inorganic silicon solar cells. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Dye-sensitized solar cell – Wikipedia

Retrieved 22 May The current efficiency is about half that of silicon cells, but the cells are lightweight and potentially of much lower cost to produce. The construction is simple enough that there are hobby kits available to hand-construct them. The electrons flow toward the transparent electrode where they are collected for powering a load. Country of ref document: A third major drawback is that the electrolyte solution contains volatile organic compounds or VOC’ssolvents which must be carefully sealed as they are hazardous to human health and the environment.


The dye molecules are quite small nanometer sizedso in order to capture a reasonable amount of the incoming light the layer of dye molecules needs to be made fairly thick, much thicker than the molecules themselves.

NL Ref legal event code: Grwetzel it is energetically possible for the electron to recombine back into the dye, the rate at which this occurs is quite slow compared to the rate that the dye regains an electron from the surrounding electrolyte. By Meredith Wadman Dec. In general terms the types of cells suitable for rooftop deployment have not changed significantly in efficiency, although costs have dropped somewhat due to increased supply.

The departed electrons leave behind vacancies in the atoms called holes that, oddly enough, can also move around.

LT Free format text: Thus, photocurrent matching is very important for the construction of highly efficient tandem pn-DSCs. PT Free format text: DSSCs degrade when exposed to ultraviolet radiation. The dyes immediately hand off excited electrons to the TiO 2 particles, which zip them along to the positive electrode. Inchemist Michael Graetzel of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne invented so-called dye-sensitized solar cells DSSCs that work best in dim light and are cheaper than the standard semiconductors.


The wide spectral response results in the dye having a deep brown-black color, and is referred to simply as “black dye”. Most of the small losses that do exist in DSSC’s are due to conduction losses in the TiO 2 and the clear electrode, or optical losses in the front electrode. So, researchers coat the particles with organic dye molecules that are exceptional light absorbers.

DSSCs are still at the start of their development cycle. This makes DSSCs attractive as a replacement for existing technologies in “low density” applications like rooftop solar collectors, where the mechanical robustness and light weight of the glass-less collector is a major advantage.

FI Free format text: Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology C: The newer dyes included 1-ethyl-3 methylimidazolium tetrocyanoborate [EMIB CN 4 ] which is extremely light- and temperature-stable, copper-diselenium [Cu In,GA Se 2 ] which offers higher conversion efficiencies, and others with varying special-purpose properties. The electrolyte then transports the electrons back to the dye molecules. As a result, holes tend to pile up near the dye and TiO 2 particles. Growth of photovoltaics Timeline of solar cells.

From there it moves by diffusion as a result of an electron concentration gradient to the clear anode on top. Expressed as a percentage, this is known as the solar conversion efficiency.
