Summary

Dye-sensitized solar cells are fabricated from xanthene (eosin yellow) and anthocyanin (pomegranate seeds) dyes. TiO2 films as an electron transfer material on Fluorine doped tin oxide glass layers were prepared by doctor blading method. Carbon coated counter electrode material used as an electron injector material and liquid Iodide/Iodine electrolyte solution was used to inject the extra electrons in the cell and to complete the electrical circuit in the solar cell.

Eosin Yellow and pomegranate dyes used to increase the absorption of the TiO2. The electrical conversion efficiencies of solar cells determined with eosin yellow and pomegranate seeds were calculated as 1.48% and 0.10% respectively, on a sunny day in Beant College of Engineering and Technology, Gurdaspur.
