    Light-induced electrolyte improvement in cobalt tris(bipyridine)-mediated dye-sensitized solar cells2019In: Journal of Materials Chemistry A, ISSN 2050-7488, Vol. 7, no 33, p. 19495-19505Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Lithium-ion-free tris(2,2 '-bipyridine) Co(ii/iii)-mediated electrolytes have previously been proposed for long-term stable dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). Such redox systems also offer an impressive DSSC performance improvement under light soaking exposure, manifested by an increase in photocurrent and fill factor without the expense of decreasing photovoltage. Kinetic studies show that charge transfer and ion diffusion at the electrode/electrolyte interface are improved due to the light exposure. Control experiments reveal that the light effect is unambiguously associated with electrolyte components, [Co(bpy)(3)](3+) and the Lewis-base additive tert-butylpyridine (TBP). Electrochemical and spectroscopic investigation of the [Co(bpy)(3)](3+)/TBP mixtures points out that the presence of TBP, which retards the electrolyte diffusion, however causes an irreversible redox reaction of [Co(bpy)(3)](3+) upon light exposure that improves the overall conductivity. This discovery not only provides a new strategy to mitigate the typical J(sc)-V-oc trade-off in Co(ii/iii)-mediated DSSCs but also highlights the importance of investigating the photochemistry of a photoelectrochemical system.

    Efficient Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells with Voltages Exceeding 1 V through Exploring Tris(4-alkoxyphenyl)amine Mediators in Combination with the Tris(bipyridine) Cobalt Redox System2018In: ACS ENERGY LETTERS, ISSN 2380-8195, Vol. 3, no 8, p. 1929-1937Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Tandem redox electrolytes, prepared by the addition of a tris(p-anisyl)amine mediator into classic tris(bipyridine)cobalt-based electrolytes, demonstrate favorable electron transfer and reduced energy loss in dye-sensitized solar cells. Here, we have successfully explored three tris(4-alkoxyphenyl)-amine mediators with bulky molecular structures and generated more effective tandem redox systems. This series of tandem redox electrolytes rendered solar cells with very high photovoltages exceeding 1 V, which approaches the theoretical voltage limit of tris(bipyridine)cobalt-based electrolytes. Solar cells with power conversion efficiencies of 9.7-11.0% under 1 sun illumination were manufactured. This corresponds to an efficiency improvement of up to 50% as compared to solar cells based on pure tris(bipyridine)cobalt-based electrolytes. The photovoltage increases with increasing steric effects of the tris(4-alkoxyphenyl)amine mediators, which is attributed to a retarded recombination kinetics. These results highlight the importance of structural design for optimized charge transfer at the sensitized semiconductor/electrolyte interface and provide insights for the future development of efficient dye-sensitized solar cells.

    Carrier Dynamics of Dye Sensitized-TiO2 in Contact with Different Cobalt Complexes in the Presence of Tri(p-anisyl)amine Intermediates2018In: The Journal of Physical Chemistry C, ISSN 1932-7447, E-ISSN 1932-7455, Vol. 122, no 26, p. 14345-14354Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Heterogeneous charge transfer processes at sensitized wide bandgap semiconductor surfaces are imperative for both fundamental knowledge and technical applications. Herein, we focus on the investigation of carrier dynamics of a triphenylamine-based dye, LEG4, sensitized TiO2 (LEG4/TiO2) in contact with two types of electrolyte systems: pure cobalt-based electrolytes and in combination with an organic donor, tri(p-anisyl)amine (TPAA). Four different cobalt redox systems with potentials spanning a 0.3 V range were studied, and the carrier recombination and regeneration kinetics were monitored both at low and at high TiO2 (e(-)) densities (1.3 X 10(18) and 1.3 X 10(19) cm(-3), respectively). The results reveal that the introduction of the TPAA intermediate more effectively suppress the recombination loss of TiO2 (e(-)) under high charge conditions, close to open-circuit, as compared to low charge conditions. As a result, the charge transfer from the cobalt complexes to the oxidized dyes is significantly improved by the addition of TPAA. Dye-sensitized solar cells fabricated with the TPAA-containing electrolytes demonstrate remarkable improvement in both V-OC and J(SC) and lead to more than 25% increase of the light-to-electricity conversion efficiency. Furthermore, an unprecedented detrimental impact of TPAA on the device performance was identified when the redox potential of the TPAA donor and the cobalt complexes are close. This is ascribed to the formation of TPAA(center dot+) which can act as an active recombination centers and thus lower the solar cell performance. These insights point at a strategy to enhance the lifetimes of electrons generated in sensitized semiconductor electrodes by overcoming the charge recombination between TiO2 and the oxidized dye under high carrier densities in the semiconductor substrate and offer practical guidance to the design of future efficient electrolyte systems for dye-sensitized solar cells.

    Energy-Loss Reduction as a Strategy to Improve the Efficiency of Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells2019In: SOLAR RRL, ISSN 2367-198X, Vol. 3, no 10, article id 1900253Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Four weak donor backbones (BT, BTP, BT2, and BT3), featuring stepwise enhanced electron-donating capacities, are designed and synthesized. The sp(3) type carbons introduced are tethered with auxiliary groups to generate a better electron-blocking stereoscopic structure. A series of NB dyes are subsequently synthesized from these central cores by end-capping a strong diphenylamine donor and a planar heterocyclic acceptor 4-(benzo[c][1,2,5]thiadiazol-4-ylethynyl)benzoic acid. The fine-tuning of steric configurations and energy levels of the resulting dye molecules reduces the energy losses significantly when applied in dye-sensitized solar cells. These devices offer one of the highest open-circuit voltages (approximate to 1.03 V) reported so far, and high power conversion efficiencies of 9.6%-12.1% using the NB dyes in combination with a well-developed cobalt-tris(4-methoxyphenyl)amine-based tandem electrolyte.

    Investigation of Triphenylamine (TPA)-Based Metal Complexes and Their Application in Perovskite Solar Cells2017In: ACS OMEGA, ISSN 2470-1343, Vol. 2, no 12, p. 9231-9240Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Triphenylamine-based metal complexes were designed and synthesized via coordination to Ni(II), Cu(II), and Zn(II) using their respective acetate salts as the starting materials. The resulting metal complexes exhibit more negative energy levels (vs vacuum) as compared to 2,2', 7,7'-tetrakis(N, N-di-p-methoxyphenylamine)-9,9'-spirobifluorene (Spiro-OMeTAD), high hole extraction efficiency, but low hole mobilities and conductivities. Application of dopants typically used for Spiro-OMeTAD was not successful, indicating a more complicated mechanism of partial oxidation besides the redox potential. However, utilization as hole-transport material was successful, giving a highest efficiency of 11.1% under AM 1.5G solar illumination.
