The role of anchors for the efficiency of p-type dye-sensitized solar cells — •Miftahussurur Hamidi Putra and Axel Groß — Institut für Theoretische Chemie, Universität Ulm, 89069 Ulm, Germany
In recent years, p-type dye-sensitized solar cells (pDSSC) have attracted a lot of attention as an alternative to conventional solar cells. However, the efficiency of this solar cell is still below 10% which hampers their utilization. One of the promising type of dyes for p-DSSC solar cells are ruthenium-based complexes [Ru(bpy)3]2+ . The efficiency of p-DSSCs is critically influenced by the anchors through which they are bound to a semiconductor substrate such as NiO. First-principles electronic calculations based on time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) have been performed in order to evaluate the performance of various candidates for anchoring [Ru(bpy)3]2+ complexes. Results will be presented and discussed with respect to properties that are related to the efficiency of p-DSSC solar cells, such as injection free energy (Δ Ginj), light harvesting efficiency (LHE), hole injecting efficiency (HJE), regeneration free energy (Δ Greg) and the excited state lifetime (τ) [1,2].
