Abstract


In the preset study dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC) have been fabricated on a flexible titanium metal foil substrate with mesoporous anatase Titania microsphers (TMS) as the electron transport layer for photo anode. These microspheres perform dual function of light scattering and efficient dye absorption. A light to electricity conversion efficiency of 2.93% is achieved with illumination through the counter electrode. Additionally electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) is used to analyze the electron transport processes occurring at the various interfaces.

Keywords
