Abstract: Flexible dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) are highly desirable to meet the growing demands of portable, light-weight and flexible personal energy sources. During the Ph.D study, I developed a unique transfer method for the fabrication of efficient flexible DSSCs containing iodine/iodide based liquid electrolytes. This transfer method overcomes the difficulty of creating high-quality nanocrystalline TiO2 thin films on plastic substrates, and an overall energy conversion efficiency of 5.47% was obtained. The transfer method was further extended to solid state DSSCs with poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) as the hole conductor and TiO2 on FTO or metallic titanium sheets as the photoelectrodes. Finally, the doping of TiO2 nanowires was extensively investigated to improve their performances in DSSCs.
