Plasmon resonant enhancement of dye sensitized solar cells

This paper reports improved efficiency of dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) by exploiting the plasmonic resonance of Au nanoparticles. By incorporating plasmon resonant nanoparticles into a TiO2 photoanode, enhanced photocurrent in DSSCs is observed extending from 460 nm to 730 nm.
