Dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) have garnered a great deal of interest as a cost-effective technology for large-scale manufacturing. Engineered inorganic hybrid nanostructures can improve the performance of DSSC’s without affecting the cost effectiveness of the devices. Here, we present a concept of engineered hybrid nanostructures, incorporating appropriate selection of nanowire and nanoparticle materials, to enhance the charge transport and reduce the recombination within the photoanode. Low recombination properties of this photoanode allow flexibility in choosing the redox couple for increasing open circuit voltage.
