Paper Title:
Performance and Stability of Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells with Quasi-Solid State Electrolytes Base on N-Methyl-Quinoline Iodide
  Abstract

We have fabricated dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) with quasi-solid state electrolytes base on N-methyl-quinoline iodide and studied the performance and stability of the cells at different temperatures. The quasi-solid state electrolytes were prepared from polymer gel electrolyte based on N-methyl-quinoline iodide and iodine. Pure-anatase nanocrystalline TiO2 films with absorption of standard N719 dye were employed as working electrodes. The maximum efficiency of the solar cells was 4.5 % under incident light of 100 mW/cm2. The cells also showed excellent stability for several months under irradiation of sunlight. The ionic conductivity of the electrolytes and the performance of the cells at different temperatures were presented.
