Abstract

Titania nanoparticles (TNPs) and titania nanotubes (TNTs) are prepared using facile sol–gel and hydrothermal methods, respectively. The individual and combined effects of TNPs and TNTs-based photoanode materials are tested for dye-sensitized solar cells applications. The higher power conversion efficiency of 5.43% is obtained for the combined photoanode (TNTs coated on to TNPs layer) than that of the individual ones.
