Abstract: With the increase in awareness about the disadvantages involving the consumption of fossil fuels causes, research has really picked up in the field of renewable sources especially solar energy. This project aims to fabricate a solar cell with quantum dots as sensitizers instead of the more common one-dyes and tries to determine the efficiency of such a solar cell.

Keywords: quantum dot, photovoltaic, electrodes, short circuit current, open circuit voltage.


In the last few years there has been a lot of talk about the dependence of the general population on conventional (limited) sources of energy like coal and the need to overcome it because of issues like pollution and global warming leading to increase in global temperature. This has led to a lot of research into renewable sources of energy, especially solar energy since it’s the most basic energy source as most of the renewable sources of energy comes from the sun and available at almost every part of the world.

Solar cells play an important role in harnessing solar energy in which the incident solar energy is converted into electrical energy. The electricity obtained through this method is largely pollution free and is ever present.

Solar cells have progressed from inorganic to organic to hybrid solar cells. However the efficiency of the organic solar cells remain low when compared to inorganic solar cells although they seem to have a lot of potential as the raw materials required for organic solar cells are considerably cheaper than silicon which is used in traditional solar cells.
