Abstract

A dye-sensitized solar textile (DSST) with flexible character will be presented as a power source for wearable electronics and smart clothing, by balancing its electrical function and the requirements as an E-textile. For the practical roll-to-roll mass production, fibrous electrodes will be assembled into conventional satin weave structure by using a hand loom. Furthermore, to enhance the conversion efficiency of the cell and to provide a decorative factor for DSSCs for smart clothing, the effects of panchromatic patterning of DSSTs will be evaluated by arranging different ratios of three types of indoline sensitizers onto selective loading sites.
