Paper Title:
Development of a Dye-Sensitized Solar Cell with a Carbon Counter Electrode Formed by Screen-Printing
  Abstract

In this study, we attempted to develop a low-cost dye-sensitized solar cell (DSC) by substituting a screen-printed carbon electrode for the conventional platinum counter electrode. Carbon electrodes were formed from mixtures of activated carbon, carbon nanofiber, carbon black, and a resin. The best carbon electrode conversion efficiency obtained was approximately 90% that of a platinum-based electrode.
