ABSTRACT:
In this period of rapid exhaustion of fossil fuels, there is an urgent need to utilize alternative energy sources that are abundant in nature. Solar energy being one of the major energy sources is being utilized to generate energy via solar cells. DSSC (Dye Sensitized Solar cell) is a modern type of solar cell which converts solar energy into electrical energy. Due to its low cost, ease of fabrication and various other advantages, DSSC is invoking the researchers to do extensive research and find various ways to enhance its performance. This review paper comprises of most of the information about DSSC regarding the various components of DSSC, its working principle, the ways by which its efficiency can be enhanced and its applications. The ways to improve efficiency have been discussed in detail.
KEYWORDS:
DSSC (Dye sensitized Solar Cell), PCE (Photo conversion efficiency), photoanode, counter electrode, solar light energy conversion.
