The absorption maximum of a cis-configured squaraine dye (HSQ1) is red-shifted to 686 nm using a simple molecular design strategy. Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs) co-sensitized with HSQ1 and N3 (a Ru bipyridyl complex) show an energy-conversion efficiency of 8.14%. HSQ1 is the first squaraine dye to possess such a broad incident photon-to-current conversion efficiency (IPCE) response spectrum and high conversion efficiency at long wavelengths.
