Abstract
Vertically aligned long TiO2 nanotube (NT) electrodes with optimized structures for photovoltaic application were prepared by a two-step anodization method. The structures of the conventional TiO2 NT electrodes prepared by one-step anodization became severely bundled and disordered for tube lengths exceeding 20 mm. On the other hand, two-step anodization resulted in uniform and bundle-free TiO2 NT electrodes, with tube lengths of up to 38 mm. When used in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) as photoanodes, the two-step TiO2 NT electrodes exhibited enhanced shortcircuit current density ( Jsc) with increasing tube length, owing to an increased roughness factor, which resulted in high dye loading. However, the dark current and open-circuit voltage decay (OCVD) curves confirmed that the electron recombination rate increased, and the electron lifetime decreased, with increasing tube length. This reduced electron lifetime resulted in sharp reductions in the open-circuit voltage (Voc) with increasing tube length. Owing to the trade-off between the enhanced current density and the reduced electron lifetime, an optimal conversion efficiency of 4.56% was obtained for a tube length of 29 mm. © 2015 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
