Abstract

Producing dye sensitised solar cells in their original colours required a number of different techniques. Plants and berries were used to extract these dyes. The DSSCs were manufactured by recycling the old dyes. It was clear that the efficiency of the power conversion was deteriorating. TiO2 mesoporous films’ potential applications were also studied. This study employed electrochemical impedance spectroscopy to examine the interactions of natural dyes with TiO2. Bi2O3 nanoparticles incorporated onto TiO2 photoanodes to rise competence. Electron microscopy utilised to look at Bi2O3 nanoparticles (TEM). X-ray diffraction experiments verified that the synthesised silver nanoparticles had a face-centered cubic lattice structure. Our transmission electron microscope found nanoparticles with sizes between 20 and 50 nm. Bi2O3-TiO2 had a nanospherical shape with a high porosity. The investigation was carried out with both of these microscopes. During the lengthy investigation, this was discovered. Bi2O3-TiO2 included titanium, biium, and oxygen, as determined by EDX examination. Producing green silver nanoparticles using Bi2O3 and TiO2 catalysts (1, 2, and 3 weight percent). It’s no secret that solar cell efficiency has risen dramatically in recent years. An additional 12.1 percentage points were added to the maximum open-circuit voltage, whereas only 10.7 percentage points were added to the maximum short-circuit current density. The efficiency of the power conversion process was seen to deteriorate over a week.
