Abstract

original image

An iodine-free solid-state dye-sensitized solar cell (ssDSSC) with 6.8% efficiency can be fabricated using conductive polymers and organized mesoporous TiO2. On page 4633, Eunkyoung Kim, Jong Hak Kim, and co-workers show the effects of polymer conductivity and transmittance of the interfacial TiO2 layer on energy conversion efficiency. This method can be used for the fabrication of various photovoltaic cells.
