Current commercial photovoltaics based on silicon are both expensive and energy intensive to fabricate, whereas dye-sensitised solar cells (DSSCs) are cheaper, more flexible and can be tuned to absorb a greater range of wavelengths for improved efficiency. In order to maximise the efficiency of DSSCs, a
