Quantum Dot Sensitized Solar Cells (QDSCs), which employ quantum dots as photon harvesters, have emerged as the most promising candidate among third-generation photovoltaic devices due to their versatility and range of unique features. The proper assembly and ordering of semiconductor quantum dots in a mesoscopic oxide film such as TiO2 is crucial for the fabrication of efficient QDSCs. In spite of their huge potential in improving the power conversion efficiency (PCE) of solar cells, the photovoltaic performance of QDSCs is found to be limited by two main factors, namely, the charge recombination at the electrode/electrolyte interface, and transport of photogenerated electrons through the nanostructured photoanode architecture.
