Electronic properties of mesostructured metal oxides in dye-sensitized solar cells

Abstract:

Solid-state dye-sensitized solar cells (ssDSCs) offer the possibility of high power conversion efficiencies (PCEs) of over 20%. However, after more than a decade of research, devices still barely reach over 7% PCEs. In this thesis, limitations to device performance are studied in detail, and solutions for future advancement are put forward.

In the first part of the thesis, factors limiting charge generation are explored by studying the crystallization environment of mesoporous TiO...
