Poly[3-(2-hydroxyethyl)-2,5-thienylene] grafted reduced graphene oxide: an efficient alternate material of TiO2 in dye sensitized solar cells

Author affiliations

Abstract

Replacement of the TiO2 layer in a traditional dye sensitized solar cell (DSC) by poly[3-(2-hydroxyethyl)-2,5-thienylene] grafted reduced graphene oxide (PHET-g-rGO) yields an overall power conversion efficiency of 3.06% with the N-719 dye, where the rGO part increases the charge mobility by reducing the backward recombination reaction in the DSC.
