Abstract

We quantify the strong dependence of photocurrent on the angle of incidence of light in a dye solar cell (DSC). Under laser illumination the photocurrent increases for large incidence angles. The enhancements are different upon using or not a coupling prism. They are explained with a model including three different angular factors. The observed enhancements up to 25% can be useful for evaluating novel designs of an efficient photon management in DSCs. Even an effective refractive index for the mesoporous titania/electrolyte phase was retrieved from the angle dependent photocurrent.
