Fabrication of Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells with Hydrothermally-Synthesized TiO2 Nanopowder Films
TiO2 nanopowders were synthesized hydrothermally from TiCl4 aqueous solution. Particle diameters could be varied in the range 5–65 nm by controlling the synthesis time and temperature. Dye-sensitized solar cells were fabricated using the powders and their power generation efficiencies were evaluated.
