An electron injection highway: CdSe nanorods with CdS seed material were applied to a quantum rod-sensitized TiO2 solar cell that showed a higher electron injection efficiency than analogous quantum dot-sensitized solar cells: reducing the nanocrystals′ carrier confinement dimensions can improve electron injection efficiency of nanocrystal-sensitized solar cells.
