Abstract: Indoline dyeD-1was successfully applied as a cosensitizer for improving the spectral response of black dye in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs). It was observed thatD-1effectively increases the short-circuit photocurrent by offsetting the competitive light absorption byI/I3-electrolyte in the wavelength region 350–500 nm when adsorbed on the TiO2nanocrystaline films in a mix dye system. The DSCs containing theD-1and black dye achieved a power conversion efficiency of 9.80% with higher short-circuit photocurren…
