Abstract

During the last 15 yr, there has been a steady exploration of new ideas to make solar cells based on nanostructured materials; large interfacial areas in nanostructured materials present significant advantages for light absorption charge separation, the two critical steps for solar-to-electric energy conversion. Specifically, dye-sensitized solar cells that make use of nanostructured wide band gap semiconductor films photosensitized with a metal-organic dye have emerged as a promising and potentially low-cost alternative to the traditional photovoltaic devices based on the p-n junction. Dye-sensitized solar cells based on ZnO nanowires and combinations of ZnO nanowires and nanoparticles are presented. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Annual Meeting and Fall Showcase (Cincinnati, OH 10/30/2005-11/4/2005).
