Microwave assisted chemical bath deposition of PbS quantum dots for quantum dot-sensitized solar cells

Guang Zhu, Likun Pan*, Hengchao Sun, Zhuo Sun



  A simple, rapid and effective method of microwave assisted chemical bath deposition (MACBD) has been adopted to deposit PbS quantum dots on the surface of TiO2 film as a photoanode for quantum dot-sensitized solar cells. The photovoltaic performance of the as-prepared cell is investigated. The results show that the cell based on MACBD deposited TiO2/PbS electrode achieves a power conversion efficiency of 0.15% at one sun (AM 1.5G, 100 mWcm-2). The present synthetic strategy should be a promising fabrication technique for QDSSCs.
