Catching the rainbow: Light harvesting in dye-sensitized solar cells

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Dye-sensitised solar cells have been established as a low-cost photovoltaic system, however development of dyes that harvest solar radiation over a broad spectral range has proven difficult. Co-sensitisation using more than one dye is now emerging as a successful concept to extend the spectral coverage and potentially lead to higher energy-conversion efficiencies.
