Nanocomposite organic-inorganic dye-sensitised solar cells have been constructed by using solution processed materials that are easily deposited, they do not necessitate sealing or encapsulation and offer satisfactory efficiency. The main components of the cell are a nanocrystalline titania layer made of commercial Degussa P25 and a solid gel electrolyte made of a ureasil precursor. Details on cell construction are given and show that the whole procedure can be upscaled for massive production.
