Fabrication Dye Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSCs) Using β-Carotene Pigment Based Natural Dye.

MATEC Web of Conferences (2018) 159, 02073

The adsorption characteristic of natural dye has been studied on harvesting light using purification process. The purification process used for separation pigment photosynthesis of syngonium leafs was called fractionation. The first fractionation of the d ye contains pigment of βcarotene . The absorpton spectrum of β-carotene has been investigated by
using UvVis spectroscopy. The Fourier Transform Infrared revealed that the binding of the dye was on the surface of TiO2.Analysis absorbance and energy gap of the dye has been investigated by using UvVis spectroscopy and Tauc relation. The cells were illuminated under 100 mW/cm2AM 1.5 condition. The performance of the cells with sensitized the fractionation dye has a short circut current density (Jsc)of 0.27 mA/cm2,an open circuit photovoltage (Voc)of 0.4V, and Fill Factor (FF) of 68.89%. Furthermore, the overall efficiency of DSSC is 0.074%. The low efficiency for the fractionation cell based dye sensitized solar cells due to the weakness of interaction between dye molecule and the surface of TiO2
