Recombination at the TiO2/electrolyte interface, detachment (desorption) of molecular dyes from photo-electrodes, and detachment (desorption) of molecular dyes from photo-electrodes are the major limitations for the operation of dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs). Here we demonstrate a method to greatly inhibit these losses by growing transparent metal oxides (TiO2, Al2O3, and SiO2) on the dye-coated photo-electrode via atomic layer deposition (ALD) or cross-linking beween metal precusors. The post-metal oxide coating covers the highly convoluted surface of the TiO2 conformally and with a uniform thickness throughout the thousands of layers of nanoparticles. The subsequent coverage by metal oxides could provide a means to not only efficiently reduce the intermolecular interaction of dyes, but also to retard the interfacial charge recombination dynamics. DSCs incorporating these selective and self-aligned metal-oxide layers achieved a 30-40% increase in relative efficiency versus control uncoated cells. A detailed photophysical study using time-resolved fluorescence (TRF) spectroscopy is used to obtain a better understanding of the mechanism by which the post ALD treatment alters the performance of DSSCs. Additionally, the TiO2-enshrouded sensitizers largely resist detachment, even in pH 10.7 ethanol, a standard solution for intentional removal of molecular dyes from photo-electrode surfaces. The ALD post-treatment renders the otherwise hydrophobic dye-coated surface hydrophilic, thereby enhancing photo-electrode pore filling with aqueous solution. When subsequently operated in water, the ALD-treated DSC yielded a 42% increase in relative efficiency versus an untreated cell, with the improvement coming chiefly from increased photocurrent.
