Presented at: 19th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition, Paris, France, 7-11 juni 2004.


Several areas are explored for dye-sensitized solar cells (nc-DSC) in the field of new concepts and materials, fabrication protocols for TiO2 and scatterlayers, metal oxide blocking layers and low temperature processes of platinum deposition. The combined efforts have led to maximum power conversion efficiencies under full sunlight of 11 % for areas <0.2 cm2 and 10.1 % for a cell with an active area of 1.3 cm2 which is the highest efficiency ever measured for a nc-DSC with an active area > 1 cm2.
