An investigation of the performance of dye-sensitized nanocrystalline solar cell with anthocyanin dye and ruthenium dye as the sensitizers

By Jian Zahn, Peng Sun, Shan Jiang and Xiaohang Sun


As a new technology, in the solar cell field the dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) gives a technically and economically viable idea to develop the solar cell technology. Compared with conventional silicon solar cells, where the semiconductor assumes light absorption. The use of sensitizers have a broad absorption bandgap with semiconductor films of porous or nanocrystalline. According to this concept, we would like to rebuild the dye-sensitized nanocrystalline solar cell and investigate the performance of our modals. Moreover, we have used two dyes of anthocyanin dye and ruthenium dye. Due to our poor skill and ignore of the light source, we have got really low efficiency. Nevertheless, the solar cells can perform good ability to absorb the light. In the UV-VIS measurement, it is easily to observe the big difference of absorption ability for the two dyes
