Ferrocene to the rescue: The dye-sensitized solar cell allows changes in the energetics of electron transport, molecular absorbers, and hole transport materials to better harvest the energy of solar photons (see picture). A recent paper describing a new dye with a high excited state in combination with ferrocene redox mediator shows progress in this direction.
