Abstract

Dye sensitized solar cells (DSSC) are of great interest for the conversion of solar energy into electrical energy and are future alternatives to silicon solar cells. We have synthesized doped ZnO and Ag multilayer which is used as transparent electrode. Small quantity of ZnO incorporated TiO2 matrix is used for the fabrication of DSSC. Chemical vapour deposition method is used to prepare ZnO covered TiO2 film. The DSSC on the Al doped ZnO and Ag multilayer covered with ZnO/TiO2 film yielded an overall cell efficiency of 5.45 %. Therefore, DSSC using low cost transparent conducting oxide film and mercurochrome dye is a nice step to develop DSSC.
