In this work, the influences of catalyst materials of counter electrodes – carbon (C) and platinum (Pt) electrodes, transparent conducting oxide (TCO) substrates – fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) and indium-doped tin oxide (ITO) glasses and dyes (N3 and N719 dyes) on the photovoltaic performance of dye-sensitised solar cells (DSCCs) were investigated. DSSC was fabricated with standard configuration: a mesoporous TiO2 layer (15–20 nm particle size, anatase phase) deposited on ITO/FTO glass as photoanode, N3/N719 (Solaronix) as dyes, chenodeoxycholic acid as co-adsorbent in dye solution, Pt-coated/C-coated glass as counter electrode and Iodolyte AN-50 (Solaronix) as electrolyte. The optimised DSSC demonstrated photovoltaic performance of short-circuit photocurrent density (Jsc) of 8.36 mA/cm2, open-circuit photovoltage (Voc) of 0.69 V and a fill factor (FF) of 0.70, corresponding to power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 4.05% under simulated air mass 1.5 solar light condition.
