A p-type NiO-based dye-sensitized solar cell with an open-circuit voltage of 0.35 V.

Abstract

In tandem: Employing a molecular dyad and a cobalt-based electrolyte gives a threefold-increase in open-circuit voltage (V(OC)) for a p-type NiO device (V(OC) = 0.35 V), and a fourfold better energy conversion efficiency. Incorporating these improvements in a TiO(2)/NiO tandem dye-sensitized solar cell (TDSC), results in a TDSC with a V(OC) = 0.91 V (see figure; CB = conductance band, VB = valence band).
