Fabricate Dye-Sensitized Solar Cell with Electrospining
Dye adsorption on Ti02 and electron transport in Ti02 film are the two critical factors in determining efficiency of the the dye sensitized solar cell (DSSC). Increasing dye adsorption which increases the light harvesting is usually achieved by using nanoporous or nanoparticle Ti02 films. Electron transport is determined by the inter-particle resistance of Ti02 film. Electrospinning is a viable method for forming porous structure materials with high surface area. In this study, it was found that electrospinning is able to achieve good solar cell performance due to the high electron transport caused by the pores in the Ti02 film.
