A group of researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology has reportedly increased the thermostability of DSC by using amphiphilic ruthenium sensitizer in conjunction with quasi-solid-state gel electrolyte.

In addition, the group also prepared a quasi-solid-state gel electrolyte with a 3-methoxypropionitrile MPN -based liquid electrolyte that was solidified graerzel a photochemically stable fluorine polymer, polyvinylidenefluoride -co- hexafluoropropylene PVDF-HFP. 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.

This is achieved through the use of nanotechnology and the conversion of the liquid electrolyte to a solid. The polymer gel electrolyte is quasi-solid at room temperature, and becomes a viscous liquid viscosity: Thin-film cells Dye-sensitized solar cells Renewable energy commercialization Ultraviolet radiation Swiss inventions.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. In the dye-sensitized solar cell, the bulk of the semiconductor is used solely for charge transport, the photoelectrons are provided from a separate photosensitive dye. The fragility of traditional silicon cells requires them to be protected from the elements, typically by encasing them in a glass box similar to a greenhousewith a metal backing for strength. No discernible performance decrease was observed.


In air infiltration of the commonly-used amorphous Spiro-MeOTAD hole-transport layer was identified as the primary cause of the degradation, rather than oxidation. Expressed as a percentage, this is known as the solar conversion efficiency.

In theory, given low rates of production, the high-energy electron in the silicon could re-combine with its own hole, giving off a photon or other form of energy which does not result in current being generated. As the name implies, electrons in the conduction band are free to move about the silicon. Dye sensitised solar cells operate as a photoanode n-DSCwhere photocurrent result from electron injection by the sensitized dye.

The major disadvantage to the DSSC design is the use of grartzel liquid electrolyte, which has temperature stability problems. He reports efficiency on the order of 5.

Diffusion of the csllule form of the shuttle to the counter electrode completes the circuit. When placed in contact, some of the electrons in the n-type portion flow into the p-type to “fill in” the missing electrons, also known as electron holes.

The process of injecting an electron directly into the TiO 2 is qualitatively different from that occurring in a traditional cell, where the electron is “promoted” within the original crystal. They may not be as attractive for large-scale deployments where higher-cost higher-efficiency cells are more viable, but even small increases in the DSSC conversion efficiency might make them suitable for some of these roles as well.

With an optimized concentration, they found that the overall power conversion efficiency improved from 5. In quantum efficiency terms, DSSCs are extremely efficient.

In this case the liquid gfaetzel is replaced by one of several solid hole conducting materials. In any semiconductor, the band gap means that only photons with that amount se energy, or more, will contribute to producing a current. In a traditional solid-state semiconductora solar cell is made from two doped crystals, one doped with n-type impurities n-type semiconductorwhich add additional free conduction band electronsand the other doped with p-type impurities p-type semiconductorwhich add additional electron holes.


At low temperatures the electrolyte can freeze, ending power production and potentially leading to graetzzel damage. Journal of Materials Science: After soaking the film in the dye solution, a thin layer of the dye is left covalently bonded to the surface of the TiO 2.

This also increases the chance that a freshly ejected electron will meet up with a previously created hole in the material before reaching the p-n junction. The enhanced performance may arise from a decrease in solvent permeation across the sealant due to the application of the polymer gel electrolyte.

Efficiency gains are possible and have recently started more widespread study. In silicon, sunlight can provide enough energy to push an electron out of the lower-energy valence band into the higher-energy conduction band. Photocurrent matching was achieved through adjustment of NiO and TiO 2 film thicknesses to control the optical absorptions and therefore match the photocurrents of both electrodes.

Dye-sensitized solar cell

One of the efficient DSSCs devices uses ruthenium-based molecular dye, e. Thus, photocurrent matching is very important for the construction of highly efficient tandem pn-DSCs. However the dye is subject to breakdown in high-light situations. Although this particular case may not be common, it is fairly easy for an electron generated by another dee to combine with a hole left behind in a previous photoexcitation.
