Density functional theory is used to examine the effect of ancillary ligands on absorption properties of a common Ruthenium-based sensitizer. The results show that the ligands influence molecular orbital energy levels, and in the case of introduction of thiophene groups, enhance the absorption efficiency of final dye-sensitized solar cells in the visible range.
