Abstract

Simple wet chemically grown ZnO with interconnected nanoparticles network having cactus morphology was successfully demonstrated as a photoanode towards dye sensitized solar cell applications with two different dyes, namely, D149 and N719 with the device efficiencies of 3.43% and 3.09%, respectively.
