Abstract


  • One-dimensional (1D) TiO2 nanostructures are very desirable for providing fascinating

    properties and features, such as high electron mobility, quantum confinement

    effects, and high specific surface area. Herein, 1D mesoporous TiO2 nanofibres were

    prepared using the electrospinning method to verify their potential for use as the photoelectrode

    of dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). The 1D mesoporous nanofibres,

    300 nm in diameter and 10-20 μm in length, were aggregated from anatase nanoparticles

    20-30 nm in size. The employment of these novel 1D mesoporous nanofibres

    significantly improved dye loading and light scattering of the DSSC photoanode,

    and resulted in conversion cell efficiency of 8.14%, corresponding to an ∼35%

    enhancement over the Degussa P25 reference photoanode.
