Virus enabled nanocomposites assembly, single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT), dye-sensitized solar cells
Dye-sensitized solar cells, fabrication of photo-anodes with improved power efficiency
Photovoltaic devices has limited power conversion efficiency.
This invention develops a general approach to synthesize single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT)/Ti02 complex in dye-sensitized solar cells by biological template method, using genetically engineered M13 virus.
