Abstract

In this Communication, we report an indoline D149 dye-sensitized solar cell with in situ polymerized PEDOT prepared in a specially designed thin-layer electrolytic cell to
serve as the polymer HTM. These devices give an average light-to-electrical efficiency of 6.1% under full sun illumination (AM1.5, 100 mW cm2), which represents a remarkable improvement for polymer-HTM-based DSSCs. A similar device with Z907
as the sensitizer was also fabricated for comparison. The
photoelectrical properties of both devices were studied, and the
photoelectron recombination and polymer penetration in each
device are discussed.
