Tao Chen, Longbin Qiu, Zhibin Yang, Zhenbo Cai, Jing Ren, Houpu Li, Huijuan Lin, Xuemei Sun and Prof. Huisheng Peng An Integrated “Energy Wire” for both Photoelectric Conversion and Energy Storage Angewandte Chemie International Edition 51
Light my wire: Aligned carbon nanotube (CNT) fibers are wrapped around a TiO2 nanowire that is several centimeters long. Treating the ends of the nanotube wire with a light-sensitive dye and an electrolyte, creates photoelectric-conversion and energy-storage regions in the same device (see scheme). The “wire” shows a high overall photoelectric conversion and storage efficiency of 1.5 %.
