Abstract

The role of nonradiative inductive-resonance energy transfer between molecules of Coumarine-7 and rhodamine dyes in the conversion of light into electric energy is studied. It is ascertained that the co-sensitization of a TiO2 solar cell by donor and acceptor molecules leads to an increase of the efficiency of conversion of light to energy. The measurements show that it is due to a widening of the photosensitivity of a cell into the blue region of the spectrum. The increase of the total energy absorbed promotes increasing the number of generated charge carriers at the interface of TiO2 and dyes.
