Paper Title:
Nanostructural Control of Pt Layer on Counter Electrode for Application to Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells
  Abstract

We report about the comparative study concerning the amount and the size of platinum layer prepared through a spray pyrolysis deposition (SPD) and an arc plasma deposition (APD) techniques to clarify the quantity of platinum for reducing the cost of dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs). It is revealed that the SPD- and APD-prepared Pt layers have enough catalytic activity to reduce the redox electrolyte.
