Abstract [en]

Nanorod arrays of zinc oxide–zinc stannate core–shell photoelectrodes were prepared by a simple hydrothermal process and cadmium sulfide (CdS) quantum dot sensitized solar cells were fabricated. The photocurrent density of the core–shell photoelectrode was found to improve by ∼2.4 times compared to ZnO nanorod photoelectrodes, due to improved surface area and charge transport in the core–shell photoelectrodes. With a thin layer of ZnS on the CdS quantum dot surface, the core–shell quantum dot sensitized solar cell demonstrated maximum power conversion efficiency of 1.24% under 1 sun illumination (AM1.5).
