Survey of the Achievement of a ZnO Dye-Synthesized Solar Cell
The adoption of renewable energy resources is already becoming incredibly valuable if we are to make the appropriate changes to confront the effects of global warming. Because solar energy is the most widely known form of renewable energy, much focus has been placed on finding quality materials with high energy outputs to replace conventional fossil fuel energy sources. To utilize sun energy for power generation, the dye synthesis solar cell, which belongs to third-generation photovoltaic technology, is likely to compete with more mature silicon technologies. In this paper, we attempt to convey the core idea of dye-synthesized solar cells and the material used to make photoanodes. To find out the contribution of the researcher to the achievement of the DSSC technology, previous studies were reviewed, and the factors that influence performance were analyzed. The research shows that proper optimizations relevant to dopant, light intensity, and type of materials and a new novel approach to increasing photo-electrochemical activity in DSSC could make the devices compete with silicon technology.
