Recent Development of Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells Based on Flexible Substrates
Dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) will be a promising device to solve the energy crisis and environment issues due to its low-cost, eco-friendly properties and relatively high light-to-electricity conversion efficiency. Comparing to traditional DSSCs on rigid glass substrates, light-weight DSSCs on flexible substrates significantly broaden the application areas of the devices which are much desirable for commercialization and industry. This review tries to summarize in depth the recent efforts on flexible DSSCs, especially the fabrication techniques of both photoanodes and counter electrodes on conductive plastic, metal and fiber-shaped substrates, and also emphasized the nanomaterials with novel structures and morphologies used for flexible DSSCs. The properties are expected to be of use to readers from various disciplines.
