Abstract

original image

Ein halbleitendes Kupferzinkzinnsulfid (CZTS) kann Platinmetall als Gegenelektrode (CE) ersetzen und ermöglicht die Konstruktion kostengünstiger, hoch effizienter Farbstoff-sensibilisierter Solarzellen (DSSCs). CZTS-Nanokristalle wurden synthetisiert und durch Schleuderbeschichtung auf FTO-Glas (FTO=Fluor-dotiertes Zinnoxid) aufgetragen. Nach Selenierung war die Energieumwandlungseffizienz der resultierenden DSSC ähnlich derjenigen einer Pt-CE.
