Fabrication of the Effective Counter Electrode for Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells
Pt-counter electrodes were manufactured by dip coating, spin coating and sputtering methods for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). Their properties were analyzed with cyclic voltammetry (CV), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), energy disperse spectroscopy (EDS). We also fabricated the TiO2 nanotubes of 1.04 μm length as photoanode. The analytic results show that spin coating method has higher Pt content deposited on FTO glass, better performance of charge-transfer, more positive potential of tri-iodide reduction and higher efficiency of DSSCs.
