Paper Title:
Electrode Properties of Dye Sensitized Solar Cell Using Ruthenium Complex/Titania Nano Crystal
  Abstract

Titania nanocrystals were prepared by hydrolysis of titanium alkoxide in ethanol solution. The preparation of titania / alumina thin film was performed on ITO coated glass substrate by dip coating method using ethanol of titania nanocrystal and boemite sol. The crystal structures, microstructure and thickness of titania / alumina thin film were examined by XRD and SEM. The adsorption of dye was influenced by the surface structure of thin film. The adsorption of dye on the films was improved by the immersion into acid as HNO3. Ruthenium polypyridyl complex and triarylmethylium salt were used as dye. Electrode using titania / alumina thin film for dye-sensitized solar cell was constructed.
