Studies from Tianjin University Provide New Data on Photoelectrochemicals (Enhanced photoelectrochemical performance of CdSe/Mn-CdS/TiO2 nanorod arrays solar cell)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Energy Weekly News -- Investigators publish new report on Biotechnology. According to news reporting originating from Tianjin, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Vertically oriented single-crystalline one-dimensional TiO2 nanorod arrays was synthesized directly on transparent fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) conducting glass substrate by a facile hydrothermal method and was applied as photoanode in CdSe/Mn-doped CdS quantum dots sensitized solar cells (QDSSCs)."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Tianjin University, "The effect of coating cycles of QDs on the photovoltaic performance was investigated to find the optimal combination is 10 cycles of Mn-doped CdS and 9 cycles of CdSe, the CdSe(9)/Mn-CdS(10)/TiO2 solar cell exhibited the best performance due to the complementary effect in the light absorption of Mn-doped CdS and CdSe QDs."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The power conversion efficiency of CdSe(9)/Mn-CdS(10)/TiO2 solar cell reached to 2.40% under one sun illumination (AM 1.5 G, 100 mW/cm(2)), which was 46.34% higher than that of CdSe(9)/CdS(10)/TiO2 solar cell without doping of Mn (1.64%)."
