Abstract

A novel carbon nanomaterial with aligned carbon nanotubes (CNTs) chemically bonded to a single-layered, large area graphene sheet is designed and fabricated, showing remarkable electronic and electrocatalytic properties. When the carbon nanomaterial is used as a counter electrode, the resulting dye-sensitized solar cell exhibits ≈11% enhancement of energy conversion efficiency than aligned CNT array.
