  1. 1. Photoelectrochemical studies of dye-sensitized solar cells using organic dyes

    Author : Tannia Marinado; Anders Hagfeldt; Katoh Ryuzi; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; additive; charge recombination; coadsorbent; conduction band shift; dye-sensitized; electron lifetime; electron-transfer; organic dye; photoelectrochemical; photovoltaic; sensitizer; semiconductor; solar cell; solar cell efficiency; titanium dioxide; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : The dye-sensitized solar cell (DSC) is a promising efficient low-cost molecular photovoltaic device. One of the key components in DSCs is the dye, as it is responsible for the capture of sunlight. State-of-the-art DSC devices, based on ruthenium dyes, show record efficiencies of 10-12 %. READ MORE

    Abstract : This thesis gives a detailed description of the design and synthesis of new organic sensitizers for Dye sensitized Solar Cells (DSCs). It is divided in 7 chapters, where the first gives an introduction to the field of DSCs and the synthesis of organic sensitizers. READ MORE

  3. 3. Interactions in Dye-sensitized Solar Cells

    Author : Helena Greijer Agrell; Anders Hagfeldt; Gerrit Boschloo; Laurence Peter; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; solar cells; photovoltaics; dye-sensitized; mesoporous; nanostructured; Raman scattering; Fysikalisk kemi; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : The interactions between the molecular constituents in dye-sensitized solar cells were studied with UV-VIS and IR spectroscopy, Raman scattering, conductivity and electron accumulation measurements.From stability studies of the dye, bis(tetrabutylammonium)cis-bis(thiocyanato) bis(2,2’-bipyridine-4-carboxylic acid, 4’-carboxylate) ruthenium(II), in the complete solar cell, the thiocyanate ion ligand was found to be lost from the dye.

    Abstract : Due to climate change and its effects, alternative renewable energy sources are needed in the future human society. In the work of this thesis, the Dye-sensitized Solar Cell (DSC) has been investigated and characterized. READ MORE

  5. 5. Characterization of dye-sensitized solar cells : Components for environmentally friendly photovoltaics

    Author : Hanna Ellis; Anders Hagfeldt; Gerrit Boschloo; Erik Johansson; Maria Hahlin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; solar cells; dye-sensitized solar cells; Chemistry with specialization in Physical Chemistry; Kemi med inriktning mot fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : As fossil fuels, the major source of energy used today, create the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide which causes global warming, alternative energy sources are necessary in the future. There is a need for different types of renewable energy sources such as hydropower, windpower, wave- power and photovoltaics since different parts of the world have different possibilities. READ MORE
