Abstract
This work reports on the preparation of modified TiO2 electrodes, which could be applied to the photoanodes of dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). TiO2 layers were formed on fluorine-doped tin oxide glasses via doctor-blade method followed by heat treatment. Then, the various metal hydroxides were individually incorporated onto the TiO2 layers via simple dip coating process to give modified TiO2 electrodes to DSSCs. When the surface-treated electrodes were employed, photovoltaic efficiencies of DSSCs were improved by ca. 16% compared to those of the cell fabricated with a bare TiO2 electrode. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
