Glass/FTO

 

 

Fluorine doped SnO2 (FTO) conductive glass

 

FTO (F:SnO2) coated glass is usually used as the substrate for solar cell fabrication. The main advantage of FTO compared to ITO is that it resists high temperature heating (e.g. 500 °C) without decline in conductivity.

Glass/ITO

 

 

Fluorine doped SnO2 (FTO) conductive glass

 

ITO (indium tin oxide) coated glass is the most common transparent conductive film in various devices. It is also used in solar cells, for instance, in p-i-n perovskite solar cells. It should be noted that the sheet resistance of ITO may change upon heat treatment.

TiO2 blocking layer electrode

 

 

Clear TiO2/FTO layers as starting electrodes of for dye and perovskite solar cells

 

In many types of solar cells, the first layer is a blocking layer which thoroughly covers the FTO substrate. A thin layer of TiO2 is the most commonly used blocking layer and the films are best deposited by spray pyrolysis.  TiO2 blocking layer electrode is a Glass/FTO substrate deposited by a thin layer of TiO2.

Transparent meso-TiOelectrode

 

 

A transparent meso-TiO2 layer on FTO for DSSC fabrication

 

Transparent meso-TiO2 electrode contains Glass/FTO which is coated with several micrometer transparent layer of meso-TiO2. It is used to fabricate the photo-anode of dye sensitized solar cells. Before using the electrode it is recommended to heat the electrode at around 500 °C for a few minutes in a furnace.

Transparent / Reflector TiO2 electrode

 

 

A transparent / Reflector TiO2 double layer on FTO for DSSC fabrication

 

Transparent /reflector TiO2 film contains 5 µm of reflector TiOparticles and 7 µm layer of TiOnanoparticles with average size of 20 nm, deposited on FTO glass.  The scattering layer increases light harvesting efficiency. This electrode can be used as a standard photo-anode to evaluate dye molecules, quantum dots, electrolyte and different cathodes for dye sensitized solar cells. Annealing at 500 °C is recommended prior to use.
