Abstract

original image

Co-Produktion: p-Typ-Farbstoff- solarzellen (p-DSCs) mit Elektrolyten auf [Co(en)3]2+/3+-Basis ergeben einen Wirkungsgrad der Energieumwandlung von 1.3 % und Leerlaufspannungen bis 709 mV bei der Bestrahlung mit simuliertem Sonnenlicht. Die erhöhte Photospannung folgt aus dem höheren negativen Redoxpotential von [Co(en)3]2+/3+ im Vergleich zu üblichen Mediatoren.
