Fun in the Sun - Improving the Efficiency of Grätzel Cells
Abstract:The effectiveness of Grätzel cells was examined, testing ten independent variables (type of pure dye, mixed berry dyes, dye preparation, surface area, dye pigments, light source, dyeing process, TiO2 suspension, type of TiO2, and type of solar cell) to optimize electrical energy produced. Results indicated that an absorbed, raspberry, anthocyanin, 1”, nano-particle TiO2 cell, placed in a sunny location is the most efficient Grätzel cell.
