Sunny Dye-Light: Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells
Division:Physical & Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:This project tested the solar conversion efficiency of three inexpensive natural anthocyanin dyes (blackberry, pomegranate and raspberry) when used in dye-sensitized solar cells. The solar cell efficiency was measured using an Oriel I-V (current-voltage) Solar Simulator. Blackberry dye was found to have the highest average efficiency. A prototype for charging mobile devices and music players was constructed utilizing the dye-sensitized solar cells.
