The objective of MOLESOL is to demonstrate new revolutionary
pathways for fabrication of low cost, high efficiency and
stable solar cells. Our goals are:
- To develop cost-effective chemical and screen-printing
solutions for carbon based graphene as a viable replacement of
the ITO electrode. Target of this development at mid-term of the
project is the demonstration of a resistivity of 200
and transparency of 80%.
- To develop diamond p –type as an anode for usage where a
hole can be efficiently injected from a dye to diamond (p-type
collector). The B-NCD electrode can have important used in other
organic or inorganic solar cells applications. Target of this
development at mid-term of the project is the demonstration of a
resistivity of 100
transparency of 70%.
- To demonstrate ambitious concept of molecular-wire coupled
dye solar cells (MWCD) - by assembling p-type collector, a dye
and the top n-type collector layers - with conversion efficiency
> 7.5% at mid-term of the project and propose pathways for
scalability above 11%. This will match the conversion efficiency
of the best current DSSCs.
- To demonstrate significant improvement of the stability
operation, as evaluated and by benchmarking with the current
state of-the-art OPV and DSSC technologies.
