Electrochemical design of ZnO hierarchical structures for dye-sensitized solar cells

Publication year: 2011 Source: Solar Energy Materials and Solar Cells, Available online 15 December 2011 V.-M. Guérin, J. Rathousky, Th. Pauporté ZnO single-crystalline nanowires (NWs) are highly relevant 1D-nanostructures for efficient charge collection in dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). In a first part of the paper, ZnO-NWs have been grown by electrochemistry on various fluorine-doped transparent oxide (FTO) coated glass substrates. The effects of substrate treatments and of the presence of an underlayer of TiO2or ZnO on the cell performance are reported
