Alfa Chemistry Materials Releases Dye-Sensitized Solar Cell (DSSC) Materials

Posted by Tylor on March 30th, 2021

The last decade has seen broad application prospects of dye-sensitized solar cell, which is a device that converts solar energy into electric energy. On March 24, 2021, Alfa Chemistry Materials announced to supply many kinds of materials that can be used to produce dye-sensitized solar cells. The company has long been a provider of various materials and chemicals such as 3D printing materials, micro-nano electric materials, photonic and optical materials.

Dye-sensitized solar cells belong to the group of thin-film solar cells and they have arisen as a technically reliable and economically credible device for researchers. Owing to their advantages like low cost, simple preparation methodology, low toxicity and ease of production, DSSC has been widely researched and space for improvement has also been explored. Dye-sensitized solar cell materials can used in the construction field as well as for the manufacturing of charger for smart phones, MP3 and other small portable devices.

Important types of dye-sensitized solar cell materials provided at Alfa Chemistry Materials:

Nanocrystalline semiconductor thin film electrode: they are the most widely used materials in dye-sensitized solar cells, including TiO2, ZnO, SnO2, Nb2O5 and SrTiO3. Among them, TiO2 is a kind of cheap, non-toxic, stable semiconductor material with good photo-corrosion resistance.

Electrolyte: The performance of electrolyte can have influence on the efficiency and stability of DSSC devices. Electrolytes can be divided into: liquid electrolytes, quasi solid electrolytes and solid electrolytes.

Dye photosensitizer: Dye photosensitizer is the core component of DSSC devices and plays an important role in the photovoltaic performance of the DSSC cell. Metal complex photosensitizer and pure organic photosensitizer are most frequently used.
