1. Development of Ruthenium Complex Based Sensitizers, Organic Based Sensitizers, and Co-sensitization System for Dye-sensitized Solar Cells

Chan K.F.; Lim H.N. Huang N.M.; Ahmad H.

Volume 11, Issue 6 , June 2020, , Pages 1-12

  This paper reviews the recent development of ruthenium complex sensitizers, organic sensitizers, and co-sensitizers for dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) applications. The development of ruthenium sensitizers has progressed from thiocyanate (NCS) ligands containing bipyridyl, terpyridyl, quarterpyridyl, ...  Read More

2. Symmetrical and unsymmetrical squaraine sensitizers for dye-sensitized solar cells: present day advances and future challenges

Sultan A. Al-horaibi; S.T. Gaikwad; Anjali S. Rajbhoj

Volume 9, Issue 5 , May 2018, , Pages 353-362

  The requirement for energy is ever increasing in the past few years due to the need for the innovation of clean energy and eco-friendly technologies. Symmetric and asymmetric squaraine dyes have received increasing attention and great potential for use as squaraine sensitizers for application in dye-sensitized ...  Read More

3. Synthesis, characterizations, and comparative study of electro-optical properties of indole-based squaraine sensitizers as efficiency to enhancing dye-sensitized solar cells

Sultan A. Al-horaibi; S.T. Gaikwad; Anjali S. Rajbhoj

Volume 9, Issue 4 , April 2018, , Pages 275-283

  Squaraine dyes (SQ) have acquired sufficiently great attention as dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSCs) materials. In the present study, we have synthesized and characterized of two novel symmetrical sensitizers dyes for dye-sensitized solar cells which contain electron withdrawing (−COOH) group with ...  Read More

Volume 9, Issue 4 , April 2018, , Pages 284-290

  This research aimed to build hybrid solar cells, based on Grätzel method. We used the Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) polymer as a substrate containing a layer of Indium Tin Oxide (ITO). Films of ZnO nanoparticles (ZnO NPs) synthesized by Pechini Method, and four different dyes were tested: Congo ...  Read More

5. Templated synthesis of mesoscopic titania and its application in the solid-state dye-sensitized solar cells 

Yashwant Pandit; G. T. Harini; Deepa Landage; Chetan J. Bhongale

Volume 9, Issue 2 , February 2018, , Pages 148-152

  The formation of mesoscopic titania is done by templated mechanism in which the films are prepared by co-assembly of titania precursor species and complexing agent acetyl acetone (acac) and an amphiphilic structure-directing agent, Pluronic F127 (a triblock copolymer). Thinner films of titania having ...  Read More

6. Influence of oxygen ions irradiation on the optical properties of photoanodes for dye sensitized solar cell

Amrik Singh; Devendra Mohan; Dharmavir S. Ahlawat; Sandeep Chopra

Volume 8, Issue 4 , April 2017, , Pages 565-571

  Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) coated glass acts as a substrate for photoanode of Dye Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSCs). The ITO substrate was irradiated by oxygen ion with different fluence (1x10 11 and 1x10 12 ions/cm 2 ) at 100 MeV energy. The TiO2 films were also subjected with same ion irradiation at 100 MeV ...  Read More

7. Fabrication Of Cost Effective Pt And FTO-free Counter Electrode For ZnO Based Dye Sensitized Solar Cell Using Thermally Decomposed Cu2ZnSnS4 Nanoparticles

Chaitanya Bathina; Krishnaiah Mokurala; Prasanth Ravindran; Parag Bhargava; Sudhanshu Mallick

Volume 7, Issue 11 , November 2016, , Pages 861-865

  Use of Pt and fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) substrate together as a counter electrode (CE) significantly increases the fabrication cost of dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). In the present study, we report the cost effective Pt and FTO-free (Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) nanoparticle coated on W substrate) CE for ...  Read More

8. Synthesis Of ZnO Nanoparticles For Microwaveinduced Rapid Catalytic Decolorization Of Congo Red Dye

Oman Zuas; Harry Budiman; Nuryatini Hamim

Volume 4, Issue 9 , September 2013, , Pages 662-667

  The ZnO nanoparticles (ZnO NPs) were synthesized by co-precipitating method followed by calcining at 500 o C for 4 h. The characterization data show that the synthesized ZnO NPs were present in hexagonal wurtzite structure and space group P63mc with high purity and good crystalline nature. The synthesized ...  Read More
