A successful model for the design of efficient dyes for p-type dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) is presented. As an example, a novel and efficient organic dye containing a triphenylamine chromophore has been synthesized and successfully applied in a p-type DSSC. The highest incident photon-to-current conversion efficiency (IPCE) of 18% in the visible region has been obtained, which is the highest value so far in p-type DSSCs. This is remarkably high, considering that only 600 nm thin NiO mesoporous films were used as p-type DSSC electrodes.
