Abstract

A conjugated polymer containing an electron donating backbone (triphenylamine) and an
electron accepting side chain (cyanoacetic acid) with conjugated thiophene units as the linkers has been synthesized. Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) are fabricated utilizing this material as the dye sensitizer, resulting a typical power conversion efficiency of 3.39% under AM 1.5 G illumination, which represents the highest efficiency for polymer dye-sensitized
DSSCs reported so far. The results show the good promise of conjugated polymers as sensitizers for DSSC applications.
