    Understanding of Electrolyte Additives Will Improve Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    An Australian research team has demonstrated that the molecules 4-tert-butylpyridine (tBP) and 1-methyl-benzimidazole (NMBI) play a role of crucial importance, as optimal additives, in maximizing the performance of copper redox meditators. An improved understanding of the role that additives play in optimizing electrolytes may lead to more consistent dye-sensitized solar cells (DSC) for low-light conditions. That heightened understanding derives from research funded by the Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics (ACAP) and supported by the ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science. The researchers identified a combination of additives that most efficiently suppresses recombination losses, resulting in improved solar cell…
