Abstract

This paper reports the effect of TiCl4 on the performance of ZnO based DSC. ZnO was used due to its stability against photo-corrosion  and  photochemical  properties  similar  to  TiO2.  Thin  films  of  nanocrystalline  ZnO  were  deposited  on transparent conducting oxide glass using spray  method. The ZnO  films  were treated using TiCl4. The cell’s efficiency was found to be 2.5% with TiCl4 post-treatment and 1.9% without TiCl4 post-treatment.
