Poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) nanofibers were prepared by an electrospinning method using a PVA solution containing silver nitrate (AgNO3) to improve the photovoltaic properties of dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC). The electrospun PVA nanofibers containing AgNO3 were irradiated with UV light at 310∼380 nm and Ag nanoparticles were generated in their nanofibers. In the DSSC devices using the electrospun PVA/Ag nanofibers, the J sc, V oc, FF, and η showed the values of 11.9∼12.5 mA/cm2, 0.70∼0.71 V, 0.55∼0.59, and 4.73∼4.99%, respectively. When the electrospun PVA/Ag (1 wt%) nanofibers were used in the DSSC device, the power conversion efficiency showed a maximum value of 4.99%, which is higher than that of DSSC using electrospun PVA nanofibers without Ag nanoparticles. © 2011 The Polymer Society of Korea and Springer Netherlands.

Poly(vinylidenefluoride-co-hexafluoropropylene) (PVDF-HFP) nanofibers containing inorganic fillers were fabricated by electrospinning. Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) using these nanofibers showed improved short circuit currents without degraded fill factors or open circuit voltages. The long-term stabilities of cells using electrospun PVDF-HFP/titanium isopropoxide (TIP) nanofibers were significantly improved. Copyright © 2014 American Scientific Publishers.

We synthesized two organic dyes, (3-(5-(4-(bis(4-bromophenyl)amino)phenyl) thiophen-2-yl)-2-cyanoacrylic acid (TPA-T1) and 3,3′-(5,5′-(4, 4′-(4-bromophenylazanediyl)bis(4,1-phenylene))bis(thiophene-5,2-diyl)) bis(2-cyanoacrylic acid) (TPA-T2)), which contain the triphenylamine moiety as an electron donor and cyanoacrylic acid moiety as an electron acceptor, connected by thiophene units. Nanocrystalline TiO2-based dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) were fabricated using these dyes to confirm the effects of the number of electron acceptors (single or double) on their photovoltaic performance. The DSSC devices based on the TPA-T2 dye showed higher overall efficiencies (η = 2.68-4.11%) than those based on TPA-T1 (η = 2.54-3.46%) due to its the superior optical properties. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.

This study focuses on the syntheses of N,N-dimethyl-2-thiophenyl-3,4- fulleropyrrolidium iodide (DMFPI), poly N-methyl-2-thiophenyl-3,4- fulleropyrrolidine-co-3-hexylthiophene (MFP-co-3HT), poly N-methyl-2-thiophenyl- 3,4-fulleropyrrolidine-co-3-dodecylthiophene (MFP-co-3DT), and poly N-methyl-2-thiophenyl-3,4-fulleropyrrolidine-co-3-thiopheneacetic acid (MFP-co-3TA) and their photovoltaic properties as hole transporting materials (HTMs) for use in DSSCs. The synthesized DMFPI and copolymers were characterized by 1H NMR, MALDI TOF-mass spectrometry, UV-vis spectroscopy, and cyclic voltammetry. The DSSC devices were fabricated and their photovoltaic performances were measured using a solar simulator under AM 1.5 illumination. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.

This study focuses on the syntheses of zinc 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(p-tolyl) porphyrin (ZnTTP), silicon dichloride 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(p-tolyl)porphyrin (SiCl2TTP), and oxotitanium(IV) 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(p-tolyl)porphyrin (TiOTTP) and their photovoltaic properties as additives for use in electrolytes of the DSSC. In order to investigate photovoltaic effects of the DSSC devices, the FTO/TiO2/N3 Dye/Electrolyte/Pt device was fabricated by using poly (ethylene glycol) (PEG) electrolytes based on TTP metal complexes as an additive. When TiOTTP was introduced into the PEG electrolyte, the power conversion efficiency of DSSC device was shown remarkably a high value compared with values of the others.
