  • Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) offer an attractive alternative to conventional solar cells because of their lower production cost. However, the liquid electrolyte used in these cells is unstable because of solvent leakage or evaporation, and DSSCs that use a solid electrolyte do not perform as well. In this paper, we present a design in which a nanocrystal (nc)-TiO2 underlayer is integrated with an optically active porous three dimensional photonic crystals (3D PCs) overlayer, and a… CONTINUE READING
