Quantum dots (QDs) are actively explored as alternative sensitizers to inorganic complexes in sensitized solar cells (SSC) due to their interesting physical, optical, and electronic properties. It is thought that the inorganic nature of QDs should provide enhanced stability over the entirely organic or inorganic complex dyes, yet the long-term stability of laboratory QD-SSC devices has not been investigated in detail. A general approach to synthesize high stability QDs involves coating the core… CONTINUE READING
