Rechargeable Battery Using Dye Sensitized Solar Cell
By Sara Bakhshi, University of Central Florida, Florida, USA 



Dye sensitized solar cell: It has been fabricated using two FTO glass. One has been coated with platinum and the other one with TiO2. I annealed this eTiO2 electrode with different temperature and did TiCl4 treatment to get more efficiency out of this cell. The  working electrode has been soaked in dye for one day.  Then these two electrodes have been stuck using a sealant and I inserted  the electrolyte which also contain dye between them. Hence, we have a solar cell and a super capacitor.
