Abstract: The Co1-xNixCr2O4 (x=0.1, 0.2 and 0.3) solid solutions were successfully synthesized by low-temperature combustion synthesis method. The crystal structure and optical properties of the samples were investigated. The samples displayed single phase spinel structure with 30 nm in grain size. Infrared absorption peaks at about 525 and 630 cm-1 corresponded to the vibration of octahedron group ([CrO6] / [NiO6]) and tetrahedron group ([CoO4] / [NiO4]) respectively. Due to the electronic transition of 4A2(F) → 4T1(P) of Co2+, 4A2g → 4T2g of Cr3+, 3T1g(F) → 3T1g(P) and 3A2g(F) → 3T1g(F) of Ni2+, absorption peaks at about 578, 618 and 670 nm were observed in the visible region, making the color center be green. The degree of lightness, greenness and chroma increased, whereas the degree of blueness decreased, making the color of the samples transit from pale green to brilliant green as x value increased.

Abstract: In this article, spinel–type NiCr2O4 Nanocrystalline were prepared by the citrate method. After doping it into P25 (degussa, TiO2), NiCr2O4/TiO2 thin film photoanode were prepared by screen printing process on the surface of Fluorine Tin Oxide (FTO) Glass. And then they were assembled into Dye sensitized TiO2 Nanocrystalline solar cells (DSSC). The as–prepared NiCr2O4 powders were characterized by differential thermal analysis/thermo gravimetry (DTA/TG), X–ray diffraction (XRD) and ultraviolet visible (Uv–Vis) diffuse spectra. The properties of the solar cells were investigated by Solar Simular and Keithley Sourcemeter, respectively. The results showed that the grain size of the NiCr2O4 particles obtained at optimum synthesis temperature (1000 °C) was about 40.23 nm and the band gap was 1.8ev. The cell properties increased when the doping amount of NiCr2O4 was 1wt%. The open–circuit voltage (Voc) of Dye Sensitized TiO2 Nanocrystalline Solar Cell was from 0.71V up to 0.73V, The short–circuit photocurrent (Jsc) of DSSC increased from 5.21mA·cm-2 to 6.95mA·cm-2. The photoelectric conversion efficiency (η) was from 2.40% up to 3.14%, which was 30.8% higher than the pure TiO2 thin film photoanode.
