Abstract

We present the first application of an amorphous "liquid" organic semiconductor in an optoelectronic device, demonstrating that it is highly suited for use as a hole-transporting material in nanostructured dye-sensitized solar cells. For such devices, we obtain power conversion efficiencies of up to 2.4% under simulated air mass 1.5 solar spectrum at 100 mWcm(-2), and incident photon-to-electron quantum efficiencies in excess of 50%.
