In this work, we report optical and photovoltaic properties of ZnO based solid polymeric photoelectrochemical (PEC) cell. In this device construction, film of ZnO nanoparticle (NP) has been sandwiched between ITO and LiClO4-PEO solid electrolyte. ZnO NP has been used as photo-anode and the electrolyte LiClO4 has been dissolved in a solid solution polyethylene oxide that makes the device lightweight and portable. The charge transfer is performed by Li+ and ClO4- ions which serve the purpose of a… Expand
