Sensidizer RK1 is a metal-free organic dye for Dye Solar Cell application. It offers the possibility to fabricate Dye Solar Cells without ruthenium-based sensitizers.
Sensidizer RK1 can be used as a semiconductor sensitizer, such as titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. This dye features a good solubility and an intense absorption spectrum that lead to highly colorful electrodes.
Sensidizer RK1 is patented and licensed by the CEA.
The research leading to this product has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007- 2013) under grant agreement n° 315131, FP7-SME-2012 , Project ADIOS-Ru.
