Modelling interfacial charge transfer in dye-sensitised solar cells
Penny, Melissa A., Farrell, Troy W., Will, Geoffrey D., & Bell, John M. (2004) Modelling interfacial charge transfer in dye-sensitised solar cells. Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology A: Chemistry, 164(1-3), pp. 41-46.
A mathematical model of interfacial charge transfer within dye-sensitised solar cells (DSC) is presented for the semiconductor–dye–electrolyte interface. A general framework for the model equations of interfacial current is developed. The model accounts for the transfer of charge produced by reactions involving dye molecules, electrolyte species and adsorbed electrons at three semiconductor surface states. The model framework allows for identification of the required kinetic parameters necessary for solving the model equations. The general framework serves as a motivation for discussion on obtaining the required kinetic parameter values experimentally.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
