Dye-sensitized solar cells attain a new power conversion performance record
Mesoscopic dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs) were designed in 1990s by Brian O'Regan and Michael Grätzel, taking on the latter's name-- the world-famous Grätzel cells. DSCs convert light into electrical power via photosensitizers-- dye compounds that absorb light and inject electrons into an array of oxide nanocrystals which ultimately are collected as electrical current.
