One of the main issues of today is the energy problem where the use of fossil fuels has lead to environmental changes. The development of environmentally friendly alternatives is therefore of great importance. The sun is the perfect energy source since it supplies the earth with much more energy than we currently need. The development of dye sensitized solar cells (DSSC's) is one possible low cost alternative to harvest the solar energy. Here we present a series of different organic dyes for DSSC's in our search for better understanding of the dye's influence on the solar cell's performance. The aim of this work has been to alter the linker between the donor and acceptor parts in the chromophore in order to investigate how this will influence light absorption and efficiency of the solar cell.
