IIT Roorkee and CSIR-NCL researchers jointly develops organic dyes

Eduadvice

Researchers from IIT Roorkee have developed organic dyes in collaboration with CSIR-NCL Pune that can increase efficiency of Dye-Sensitised Solar Cells (DSSC). The team of researchers led by Dr. M. Sankar, Associate Professor, Department of Chemistry, IIT Roorkee, have worked to improve the photovoltaic conversion efficiencies of an organic dye called porphyrin for DSSC applications. Their latest research results have been published in a journal of the American Chemical Society (ACS) called ACS Applied Energy Materials.
