Methods to improve the energy output of dye sensitized solar cell arrays

Maine, John A. (2014) Methods to improve the energy output of dye sensitized solar cell arrays. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


The work examined the operation and optimisation of dye-sensitised solar cell arrays, informing ways to improve performance through materials choices and geometrical design. Methods to improve the output of solar arrays under shading by external objects like trees or building were developed.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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 the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
