Estimating the Maximum Attainable Efficiency in Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells

Abstract:

For an ideal solar cell, a maximum solar-to-electrical power conversion efficiency of just over 30% is achievable by harvesting UV to near IR photons up to 1.1eV. Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs) are, however, not ideal. Here, the electrical and optical losses in the dye-sensitized system are reviewed, and the main losses in potential from the conversion of an absorbed photon at the optical bandgap of the sensitizer to the open-circuit voltage generated by the solar cell are specifically hig...
