Dye Sensitized Solar Cells

Energy Harvesting With Dye Sensitized Solar Cells

Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSC) are energy harvesters that can generate power from ambient light energy. These "fit & forget" self-powered devices are used to supply power to various kinds of sensors where providing directly wired power is difficult such as inaccessible places, deployment of sensors over a wide area, or deployment of a high number of sensors. In addition, these DSC energy harvesters are able to work in sub-zero temperature places where typical batteries will not work.

An important feature of these DSC models includes high conversion efficiency in various light conditions such as low light intensity or light with a high incidence angle.
