Abstract

This study reported the fabrication of Dye-Sensitized Solar Cell (DSSC) with optimization of electrode spacing. Optimization of electrodes in DSSC will affect the amount of electrolyte solution provided. The DSSC fabrication in this study consisted of coating the TiO2 semiconductor as the working electrode, Platinum as the catalyst on the counter electrode, the Dye Ruthenium Complex as a photosensitizer, and the electrolyte solution as the electron transport media. The spacer between the working electrode and the counter electrode was varied by five variations with the thickness of 38 μm, 76 μm, 114 μm, 152 μm, and 190 μm. The DSSC was characterized using Keithley I-V Meter to know the efficiency of DSSC. The characterization showed that the best DSSC efficiency was at 76 μm electrode spacing.
