Impact of Dye-Sensitized Solar Cell Anode Preparation on Performance
Abstract: In this paper, the suitable molecular weight of polyethylene glycol (PEG) and annealing temperature for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) anode was obtained by assessing the performance of DSSCs. The output current characteristic of the DSSCs is to explore factors that affect cell conversion efficiency and the effect of the mechanism. Experimental results show that the annealing temperature of 500°C and adding PEG of molecular weight 2000, the TiO2 thin film electrode TiO2 film electrode has good optical properties.
