- We report on the effects of surface-modified TiO 2 on the performance of dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). TiO 2 surface was modified with Na 2CO 3 via a simple dip coating process and the modified TiO 2 was applied to photoelectrodes of DSSCs. By dipping of TiO 2 layer into aqueous Na 2CO 3 solution, the DSSC showed a power conversion efficiency of 9.98%, compared to that (7.75%) of the reference device without surface treatment. The UV-vis absorption spectra, the impedance spectra and the dark current studies revealed that the increase of all parameters was attributed to the enhanced dye adsorption, the prolonged electron lifetime and the reduced interfacial resistance. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
