One-step synthesis of titanium oxide with trilayer structure for dye-sensitized solar cells
Liu, Meinan, Wang, Hongxia, Yan, Cheng, Will, Geoffrey, & Bell, John M. (2011) One-step synthesis of titanium oxide with trilayer structure for dye-sensitized solar cells. Applied Physics Letters, 98(13), p. 133113.
Titanium oxide films with trilayer structure grown on fluorine doped tin oxide substrate were prepared from one-step hydrothermal process. The trilayer structure consists of microflowers, nanorod array and compact nanoparticulates, which is expected to possess the merits of good light harvesting, a high electron transport rate, while avoiding the issues of electron shunting. The photovoltaic performance was comprehensively studied and a 60% enhancement in short circuit photocurrent density was found from microflowers contribution as a light scattering layer. This unique trilayer structure exhibits great potential application in future dye-sensitized solar cells.
