Fabrication of TiO2 Nanotubes by Anodic Oxidation for the Dye Sensitized Solar Cell Application
TiO2 nanotube arrays were fabricated by anodic oxidation. It was studied that the influences of the parameters for the preparation of TiO2 nanotube arrays on the micrograph of the material, such as anodizing potential, annealing temperature. Then it is used in the dye sensitized solar cell (DSSC).The microstructures and morphologies of the TiO2 nanotubes were investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and x-ray diffraction (XRD). The results show that TiO2 nanotubes arrays were fabricated when anodizing voltage is 20V. The photoelectric conversion efficiency Subscript textof DSSC made by this structure is 1.53%, the open voltage is 0.734V, short-circuit current is 4.52mA, fill factor is 0.460.
