Abstract [en]

The surface electronic and molecular structure of a new organic chromophore useful for dye-sensitized nanostructured solar cells has been investigated by means of electron spectroscopy. Initially the use of a simple molecular system containing the polyene-diphenylaniline chromophore in a solar cell device was verified. The electronic and molecular surface structure of the functional dye-sensitized interface was then investigated in detail by a combination of core level spectroscopy, valence level spectroscopy, X-ray absorption spectroscopy, and resonant photoemission spectroscopy. The results indicate a dominating orientation of the molecule at the surface, having the diphenylaniline moiety pointing out from the surface. Valence level spectroscopy, X-ray absorption spectroscopy, and resonant photoemission spectroscopy were used to experimentally delineate the frontier electronic structure of the molecule, and the experimental spectra were analyzed against theoretical spectra, based on density functional theory. Together the investigation gives insight into energy matching of the molecular electronic states with respect to the TiO2 substrate as well as the localization of the frontier electronic states and the direction of the charge-transfer absorption process with regards to the TiO2 surface.

Abstract [en]

Nanoporous dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC) are promising devices for solar to electric energy conversion. In this thesis photoelectron spectroscopy (PES), x-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and photovoltaic measurements are used for studies of the key interfaces in the DSSC.

Photovoltaic properties of new combinations of TiO2/dye/hole-conductor heterojunctions were demonstrated and their interfacial structures were studied. Three different types of hole-conductor materials were investigated: Triarylamine derivatives, a conducting polymer and CuI. The difference in photocurrent and photovoltage properties of the heterojunction due to small changes in the hole-conductor material was followed. Also a series of dye molecules were used to measure the influence of the dye on the photovoltaic properties. Differences in both the energy-level matching and the geometric structure of the interfaces in the different heterojunctions were studied by PES. This combination of photovoltaic and PES measurements shows the possibility to link the interfacial electronic and molecular structure to the functional properties of the device.

Three effective dyes used in the DSSC, Ru(dcbpy)2(NCS)2, Ru(tcterpy)(NCS)3 and an organic dye were studied in detail using PES and XAS and resonant core hole decay spectroscopy. The results gave information of the frontier electronic structure of the dyes and how the dyes are bonded to the TiO2 surface.

Finally, the hole-conductor mechanism in a conducting polymer was investigated theoretically using semi-empirical and ab-initio methods.
