Two novel symmetrical blue squaraine sensitizers were synthesized, which exhibit panchromatic light harvesting and a record efficiency over 6% with Jsc exceeding 14 mA cm-2, and Voc over 620 mV under 1 sun. Their color, low cost, easiness of synthesis, and relatively high photo- and thermal stability open up the way for commercial applications. This journal is © the Partner Organisations 2014. Source

A new class of tribranched dye-sensitized solar cell (DSC) sensitizers carrying two conjugated donors and two acceptor/anchoring groups is introduced. The approach leads to significantly different optical properties and enhanced stability with respect to related di- and monobranched dyes and yields power conversion efficiencies of up to 5.05 %, which is possibly limited by the computed nonoptimal dye packing on the semiconductor surface. © 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
