Solid-state dye-sensitized solar cells using polymerized ionic liquid electrolyte with platinum-free counter electrode

A polymerized ionic liquid electrolyte and platinum-free counter electrode are employed for solid-state DSSCs. We are able to prepare a thin polymer electrolyte layer on nanocrystalline TiO2 in order to reduce the cell resistance. In addition, an electron conductive polymer (PEDOT/PSS) or a single-wall carbon nanotube gel is used with the cell as an inexpensive counter electrode instead of platinum. The overall photon-to-current conversion efficiency was 3.7% in this study.
