Abstract

Three novel metal-free organic dyes (DN458, DN475 and DN484) were designed for use in plastic-substrate dye-sensitized solar cells (PDSCs). The photoelectric conversion region of DN475 was successfully expanded into the near-infrared region. As a result, an energy conversion efficiency of 5.76% was achieved.
