Abstract

In the last few years, several articles have been devoted to the study of the flexible dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) in stainless steel substrate, but few of them dicuss the performance of 1cm x 1cm photoelectrode permuted differently on different size stainless steel substrate. The size of stainless steel changes with the photoelectrode permutation, and is augmented on a scale from 2cm x 2cm, 2cm x 4cm, to 4cm x 4cm while the figures of short circuit current density (Jsc) and power conversion efficiency (n) show little discrepancy, the figures of open circuit voltage (Voc) and the fill factor (FF) reduce when the size of the substrate is enlarged. Such a reduction is caused by the suppression of Jsc. Besides, put on 4cm x4cm substrate, the performance of 4 pices 1cm x 1cm photoelectrodes is bettet then one piece of 2cm x 2cm photoelectrode. With this result, we intend to find an efficient way in the manufacturing process for large-area.
