Improving performance and your knowledge on DSSCsInsplorion’s NPS technology is used in R&D improving the performance of solar cells. The real time sensor technology gives reliable and consistent measurements of the different coatings for the light receiving coating. For example, the dye impregnation step of Dye Sensitized Solar Cells can be monitored in detail using an Insplorion instrument.
Insplorion has together with Prof. Michael Grätzel’s group at EPFL in Switzerland and researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, successfully applied Insplorion’s concept, Indirect Nanoplasmonic Sensing, for studies of Dye Sensitized Solar Cells. The studies have focused on molecule adsorption in the thin films of TiO2 that the solar cells consist of. The studies are presented in Nano Letters.
