Conversion of light to electricity

High-Performance Dyes for Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells

Provides high working efficiency and durability to dye-sensitized solar cells that generates electricity even located under indoor light

These dyes contribute to the creation of single-layer dye-sensitized solar cells boasting the world’s highest level of power generation efficiency (11.9%). A high Jsc (short circuit current density) is achieved, giving superior performance in absorbing light across a wide wavelength range. Cell output reduction is held to 10% or less under high temperature and humidity conditions (85°C, 85%, RH 1000h).

Power generation efficiency surpassing conventional dye

Providing high-density with controlled aggregation, these dyes achieve high power generation efficiency even under low illumination or indirect sunlight.
