Issue Date: 2009
Abstract: Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) were fabricated by using well-crystallized ZnO nanocombs directly grown onto the fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) via non-catalytic thermal evaporation process. The thin films of as-grown ZnO nanocombs were used as photo-anode materials to fabricate the DSSCs which exhibited an overall light to electricity conversion efficiency (ECE) of 0.68 % with a fill factor of 34 %, short-circuit current of 3.14 mA/cm2 and open-circuit voltage of 0.671 V. To the best of our knowledge this is first report in which thin film of ZnO nanocombs were used as photo-anode materials to fabricate the DSSCs.
