ABSTRACT
The article presents the authors' views on a novel model of photocapacitor developed by them. They claim that the photocapacitor developed by them is a different light-driven rechargeable device, which essentially differs from the conventional method by mechanically and electrically combining a photovoltaic device and a storage device. The device is characterized as a material-level incorporation of the two functions, photovoltaic and charge storing, in a liquid-junction cell, where the iodide-iodine redox electrolyte no longer exists.

    Dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) is a promising solution to global energy and environmental problems because of its clean, low-cost, high efficiency, good durability, and easy fabrication. However, enhancing the efficiency of the DSSC still is an important issue. Here we devise a bifacial DSSC...

    Concentrators use reflection or refraction of light, or a combination of both, but concentration of light leads to a crucial heating of the cell, which involves degradation of its performance. However, solar cells especially conceived for concentration can support very intense illuminations as...
