DESTINY: dye-sensitized solar cells with enhanced stability

DESTINY aims to address major challenges in the development of stable dye-sensitized solar cells (DSC), which offer possibilities for applications in building integrated photovoltaics and consumer electronics. However, their complex structure and disparate materials cause the cells to degrade. This project will examine why this degradation takes place, and explore methods for enhancing cell life without sacrificing performance and scalability. It is hoped that its integrated approach to understanding degradation causes and proposing solutions will effect a major step towards the commercialisation of DSC.
