Paper Abstract

Dye sensitization effect of semiconductors has been investigated to increase the spectral response of photonic devices and photo-electrochemical cells. Numerous techniques, materials and device architecture have been proposed for this class of devices. Some improvements are necessary to enhance the efficiency and stability at the semiconductor/electrolyte interface of dye-based photonic devices. Though physiochemical phenomena have been well understood, use of novel techniques will lead to further development of practical devices. This paper reviews the current understanding of dye sensitization effect at the semiconductor electrolyte interfaces. Possibility to improve the performance of such devices by integration of nanotechnology is also discussed.
