This review gives a detailed summary and evaluation of the use of TiO2 doping to improve the performance of dye sensitized solar cells. Doping has a major effect on the band structure and trap states of TiO2, which in turn affect important properties such as the conduction band energy, charge transport, recombination and collection. The defect states of(More)
We investigate the effect of a post heat treatment of the absorber layer in air for antimony sulfide (Sb2S3) sensitized solar cells. Phenomenologically, exposing the Sb2S3 surface of sensitised solar cells to air at elevated temperatures is known to improve device performance. Here, we have investigated the detailed origins of this improvement. To this end,(More)
Organic-inorganic perovskites are semiconductors used for applications in optoelectronics and photovoltaics. Micron and submicron perovskite patterns have been explored in semitransparent photovoltaic and lasing applications. In this work, we show that a polymeric medium can be used to create a patterned perovskite, by using a novel and inexpensive approach.
Organic-inorganic perovskite structures in which lead is substituted by tin are exceptional candidates for broadband light absorption. Herein we present a thorough analysis of the optical properties of CH3NH3Sn x Pb1-x I3 films, providing the field with definitive insights about the possibilities of these materials for perovskite solar cells of superior(More)
Sb2S3 sensitized solar cells are a promising alternative to devices employing organic dyes. The manufacture of Sb2S3 absorber layers is however slow and cumbersome. Here, we report the modified aqueous chemical bath synthesis of Sb2S3 absorber layers for sensitized solar cells. Our method is based on the hydrolysis of SbCl3 to complex antimony ions(More)
