DSCs Modules Fabricated by Screen Printing


Article Preview

Screen printing has been considered to be the simplest and quickest way to fabricate dye- sensitized solar cells (DSCs) modules for an assembly line. 20cm×10cm DSCs modules with W-type series connection and parallel connection were fabricated. The whole fabricating process was all operated by screen-printing except for the injection of electrolyte. The optimized TiO2 electrode thickness, sealant thickness and platinum counter electrode thickness were investigated. The modules showed a reliable performance.
