We have designed and fabricated dye solar cell (DSC) Z-type modules with optimized geometries and materials. Through optimization of the layout of the modules using PSPICE simulations, the multilayer combination and treatments of the TiO2 active layers, and the fabrication processes, a conversion efficiency of 6.9% on the 43-cm2 aperture area and 9.4% on the active area was achieved. This result confirms that an effective scale-up of opaque high-performance Z-series-connected DSC modules, all realized with commercially available materials, can be accomplished.
