Abstract

Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) of 10cm2 in size were fabricated using PVDF-HFP-type polymeric solid electrolytes (PSEs). When the polymer content in the PSE and its thickness were 10mass% and 50μm, respectively, the conversion efficiency of the PSE-based DSSCs reached that of liquid electrolyte-based DSSCs. Concentration profiles of I3. across the cell gaps were simulated on the two cells using a relevant model. The simulation showed that both cells have a similar concentration profile and the I3. concentration was not zero at the counter electrode. This indicates that the I3. diffusion process was not a rate-limiting process.
