Paper Abstract

The cell structure concepts and materials to build solid-state dye solar cells based on nanocristalline titanium oxide and an organic hole conductor were investigated. The substrate cell is based on a metal foil and a semi-transparent gold window on top of the cell structure and the superstrate cell is deposited on ITO coated polymer foil replacing the traditional conductive glass as transparent substrate. Steel, titanium and polymer foil based cell were assembled. The polymer/ITO cell gave only small currents as the materials are far from optimal in that configuration, but an efficiency of 0.8 % was obtained on a Ti-foil based cell.
