Abstract

A dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) was fabricated using silica-coated quantum dot-embedded silica nanoparticles (SiO2/QD/SiO2 NPs) as a light-harvesting layer. Compared to an unmodified DSSC, the power conversion efficiency of a DSSC with SiO2/QD/SiO2 NPs (SiO2/QD/SiO2 DSSC) increased from 3.92% to 4.82%, an enhancement of approximately 23.0%.
