AbstractUrchin-like SnO2 microspheres have been grown for use as photoanodes in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). We observed that a thin layer coating of TiO2 on urchin-like SnO2 microsphere photoanodes greatly enhanced dye loading capability and light scattering ability, and achieved comparable solar cell performance even at half the thickness of a typical nanocrystalline TiO2 photoanode. In addition, this photoanode only required attaching ∼55% of the amount of dye for efficient light… Expand
