Abstract

A new spray method was applied for the working electrode of dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs), instead of the doctor-blade method, to make the film on the working electrode uniform. The working electrode was soaked to the dye which was heated to 60 C, and then the dye was vibrated by a resonator. This procedure was capable of making the dye be well adsorbed into the working electrode. The solar photovoltaic conversion efficiency is increased from 0.26 % for the doctor-blade method to 2.65 % for the proposed spray method. The TiO2 pastes were widely spread on the fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) substrate, even with a curved surface, using the spray method to achieve an efficient and simple manufacture technology of DSSCs with the advantage of low cost.
