Development of an organic redox couple and organic dyes for aqueous dye-sensitized solar cells

Author affiliations

Abstract

A water-soluble organic redox couple (TT/DTT) and new organic dyes (D45 and D51) have been developed for aqueous dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs). An optimal efficiency of 3.5% was obtained using the D51 dye and an optimized electrolyte composition. The highest IPCE value obtained was 68% at 460 nm.
