  • Abstract

    Development of nanocrystalline TiO2 dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) consisting of KI and I2 as redox couple, phenothiazine (PTZ) as an additive dissolved in a blended solid polymer electrolytic medium of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) in conjunction with polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) has been reported. The effect of incorporation of PTZ within the PMMA/PVDF/KI/I2 electrolyte system has been investigated in terms of important parameters such as fill-factor (ff), short-circuit current density (Jsc), open-circuit photovoltage (Voc) and solar radiation to electrical energy conversion efficiency (η) of the DSSC while their optimized values are found to be 0.5, 5.8 mA/cm2, 820 mV and 4.8% respectively.
