Abstract

The synthesis and full characterization of new half-squaraine dyes (Hf-SQ) containing two or three carboxylate-based linker units is reported and these dyes tested in dye-sensitized solar cell (DSC) devices. The data show improved device efficiency for a Hf-SQ dye with two linkers (η = 5.5%) compare...
