Abstract

Titanium dioxide nanofibers were fabricated directly onto thick nanoparticleelectrodes by using electrospinning and sol-gel techniques. After calcination, the anatase nanofibers obtained exhibited a one-dimensional structure of high crystallinity and average diameter of . Dye (N719) sensitized photoelectrochemical cells comprised of a nanoparticle/nanofiber electrode were fabricated. An IPCE of 85% at the wavelength of with conversion efficiencies of 8.14% and 10.3% (for areas of 0.25 and , respectively) were obtained under 1.5 AM illumination.
