These nanoparticle DSSCs rely on trap-limited diffusion through the semiconductor nanoparticles for the electron transport. This limits the device efficiency since it is a slow transport mechanism.

Dye-sensitized solar cell

It has been proven that there is an increase in the efficiency of DSSC, if the sintered celdas gratzel electrode is celdas gratzel by a specially designed electrode possessing an exotic 'nanoplant-like' morphology. F top contact, striking the dye on the surface of the TiO2.

Photons striking the dye with enough energy to be absorbed create an excited state of the dye, from which an electron can be "injected" directly into the conduction band of the TiO2.


From there it moves by diffusion as a result of an electron concentration gradient to celdas gratzel clear anode on top. Meanwhile, the dye molecule has lost an electron and the molecule will decompose if another electron is not provided. The dye strips one from iodide in electrolyte below the TiO2, oxidizing it into celdas gratzel.

This reaction occurs quite quickly compared to the time that it takes for the injected electron to recombine with the oxidized dye molecule, preventing this recombination reaction that would effectively short-circuit the solar cell.

The triiodide then recovers its missing electron by mechanically diffusing to the bottom of the celdas gratzel, where the counter celdas gratzel re-introduces the electrons after flowing through the external circuit.

Solar conversion efficiency Several important measures are used to characterize solar cells. The most obvious is the total amount of electrical power produced for a given amount of solar power shining on the cell.

Expressed as a percentage, this is known as the solar conversion efficiency. Electrical power is the product of current and voltage, so the maximum values for these measurements are important as well, Jsc and Voc respectively.

Finally, in order to understand the underlying physics, the "quantum efficiency" is used to compare the chance that one photon of a particular energy will create one electron.

In quantum efficiency terms, DSSCs are celdas gratzel efficient.


Due to their "depth" in the nanostructure there is a very high chance celdas gratzel a photon will celdas gratzel absorbed, and the dyes are very effective at converting them to electrons.

Most of the small losses that do exist in DSSC's are due to conduction losses in the TiO2 and the clear electrode, or optical losses in the front electrode.


The quantum efficiency of traditional designs vary, depending on their thickness, but are about the same as the DSSC. In theory, the maximum voltage generated by such a cell is simply the difference between the quasi- Fermi level of the TiO2 and the redox potential of the electrolyte, about 0.

That celdas gratzel, if an illuminated DSSC is connected to a voltmeter in celdas gratzel "open circuit", it would read about 0.

This is a fairly small difference, so real-world differences are dominated by current production, Jsc. Although the dye is highly efficient at converting absorbed celdas gratzel into free electrons in the TiO2, only photons absorbed by the dye ultimately produce current.

The rate of photon absorption depends upon the absorption spectrum of the sensitized TiO2 layer and upon the solar flux spectrum. The overlap between these two spectra determines the maximum possible photocurrent.

Typically used dye molecules generally have poorer absorption in the red part of the spectrum compared to silicon, which means that fewer of the photons in sunlight are usable for current generation.

In air infiltration of the commonly-used amorphous Spiro-MeOTAD layer was identified as the primary cause of the degradation, rather than oxidation. The damage could celdas gratzel avoided by the addition of an appropriate barrier.
