Plasmonic dye-sensitized solar cells using core-shell metal-insulator nanoparticles

Abstract:
We present an investigation into incorporating core-shell Au-SiO 2 nanoparticles into dye-sensitized solar cells. We demonstrate plasmon-enhanced light absorption, photocurrent, and efficiency for both iodide/triiodide electrolyte based and solid-state dye-sensitized solar cells. Our spectroscopic investigation indicates that plasmon-enhanced photocarrier generation competes well with plasmons oscillation damping with in the first tens of femtoseconds following light absorption. © 2010 American Chemical Society.
