Summary

This class is intended to make students familiar with dye sensitized solar cells. It presents the principle of design and rationalize the influence of various components on the power conversion efficiency of solar cells.

Content

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Describe operating principle of dye solar cell
  • Design photovoltaic sensitizer
  • Compare different redox electrolytes
  • Discuss effect of different parameters to enhance PV performance
  • Optimize dye, electrolyte combinations
  • Investigate influence of additives in electrolytes on device parameters
  • Describe various perovskite solar cell architectures
  • Predict the spectral response of the sensitizers by variying the ligand stregth.
  • Explain how we can tune the band gap energy of organo matalic perovskites.
