Abstract:

Pure and TiO2- and CdSe-deposited ZnO nanosheets aligned vertically to the surface of ITO (Indium tin oxide) are prepared using electrodeposition, which is used for building blocks of dye sensitized solar cell. A significant improvement in the photovoltaic efficiency can be obtained by depositing TiO2 or CdSe on ZnO. Photoluminescence spectra show that the TiO2 and CdSe nanostructures suppress the recombination of the electron–hole pair of ZnO. We suggest that the interface charge transfer at TiO2–ZnO and CdSe–ZnO should be responsible for the suppression of the electron–hole pair recombination and enhanced solar cell efficiency by TiO2 and CdSe nanostructures.
