Output efficiency of transparent solar cell pushed close to 10%

The transparent property of dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC), the next generation solar cell, allows it to be attached onto the glass walls and generate electricity. A team of Korean researchers was able to increase the efficiency of DSSC close to 10%.

The technique developed by the research team involves a relatively simple process of adding an inexpensive material, acetylene black, and volatilizing it to enhance the generation efficiency, making it to be suitable for commercialization.  The joint research team including Professor Soongil Yoon of Choongnam University and Taeyeon Cho of SeAH E&T announced on the 26th that it was able to increase the generation efficiency of DSSC up to 9.8%.
