A long-term stable Pt counter electrode modified by POM-based multilayer film for high conversion efficiency dye-sensitized solar cells.
ABSTRACT A long-term stable Pt counter electrode modified by POM-based multilayer film has been fabricated by the electrochemical deposition method, which can markedly increase short-circuit photocurrent, open-circuit voltage and the conversion efficiency when used in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs).

ABSTRACT: Abstract Keggin-type polyoxometalates (POMs) based photosensitizer [(CH3)4N]5[PW11O39RhCH2COOH]∙6H2O (PW11Rh-COOH) was firstly explored for assembling the POMs sensitized solar cells (PSSC). Electrochemical measurement, UV–vis diffuse reflectance spectrum, Surface photovoltage spectrum, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy demonstrated that PW11Rh-COOH displayed higher photovoltaic response than that of other POMs because of the better visible-light response, energy level matching and higher carrier separation efficiency.Inorganic Chemistry Communications 01/2013; 38:78-82. · 2.02 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: Two Anderson-type heteropolyanion-supported copper phenanthroline redox couples have been successfully introduced into dye-sensitized solar cells, which can significantly increase the short-circuit photocurrent, open-circuit voltage and the conversion efficiency by 2.2 times, 26.8% and 3.93 times respectively, compared to the pristine copper phenanthroline redox couple.Dalton Transactions 11/2013; · 4.10 Impact Factor
