Abstract

Light-weight PEDOT-Pt/Ti mesh and Ti/TiO 2 foil electrodes are prepared. Owing to the PEDOT-Pt/Ti photocathode's high transparency, good electrocatalytic activity, and low resistance; the Ti/TiO 2 anode's large specific area and high conductivity, a light-weight backside illuminated large-area (100 cm 2) dye-sensitized solar cell achieves an energy conversion efficiency of 6.69% under an outdoors sunlight irradiation of 55 mW cm -2.
