Abstract

We have demonstrated that co-sensitization of TiO2electrode with an inexpensive rhodamine 19 perchlorate laser dye along with N3 dye not only enhances the incident-photon-to-current conversion efficiency but also reduces dark current. Consequently, the devices yield an average power efficiency of 4.7% as against 2.3% and 0.6% obtained for N3 and rhodamine 19 perchlorate dye based devices, respectively. The improvement in efficiency is attributed to the enhanced dye absorption on TiO2electrode as well as reduced dye aggregation that resulted from the usage of two dyes on different anchoring sites of single TiO2electrode.
