Optimization of TiO/sub 2/ substrate for dye-sensitized solar cells

The effect of pre-thermal treatment on anatase TiO/sub 2/ with high specific surface area (ca. 334 m/sup 2//g, HK) was investigated for dye-sensitized solar cell (DSC). The optimized substrate was observed on the HK pre-calcined at 450/spl deg/C (HK-450) in terms of morphological feature, crystallinity, surface area, and photocurrent density. A DSC… CONTINUE READING
