The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "These materials have been dispersed using PEDOT: PSS polymer and then deposited on fluorine doped tin oxide (FTO) glass as well as on a non-conducting glass substrate by a drop casting method. The testing of these electrodes in DSSCs have demonstrated a power conversion efficiency of up to 4.10% to compare with the power conversion efficiency of 3.90% for the DSSC with a standard Pt based CE. New CEs were also made where both Pt and FTO were completely replaced by the hybrid PEDOT: PSS-GNPs-MWCNT nanomaterials."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The DSSC with these new platinum- and FTO-free CEs have demonstrated an efficiency of up to 2.48%."
