Abstract

A composite made of electrospun TiO2 nanofibers and conventional TiO2 nanoparticles is an innovative type of photoanode, which noticeably improves the harvesting of light without substantially sacrificing the attachment (uptake) of dye molecules for convenient fabrication of dye-sensitized solar cells with significantly improved efficiency.
