Abstract

Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) utilize high surface area metal oxide sintered particle networks to absorb molecular dyes and transport injected charge carriers. While this sintered particle architecture allows liquid electrolyte DSSCs to achieve efficiencies up to 11%, slow charge transport through the semiconductor network limits the amount of modification that can be made to the electrolyte and dye without adversely affecting the efficiency. The functionalization of anodic aluminum oxide membranes with thin films of transparent, semiconducting oxides via atomic layer deposition may allow for significantly faster charge transport. We demonstrate the fabrication of ZnO thin films within and upon commercially available anodic aluminum oxide membranes via atomic layer deposition.
