Towards high-performance DPP-based sensitizers for DSC applications

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel, asymmetric DPP bridge/core was synthesized and tested in DSC devices. By desymmetrising the DPP core/bridge, a remarkable IPCE of >80% and a maximum power conversion efficiency of 7.7% were achieved. With the use of a wide-bandgap co-sensitizer, 8.6% PCE was realized under standard AM1.5G sunlight.
