A dye-sensitized solar cell with efficiency over 4% has been fabricated using a composite electrolyte containing LiI(CH3OH)4-I2, SiO2 particles and an ionic liquid, triethylamine hydrothiocyanate (THT). The ionic liquid is used as a cooperative electrolyte. Nano-sized SiO2 particles act as both an inhibitor of crystal growth of the solid-state electrolyte and an insulator layer between the photoanode and the counter electrode. To cite this article: X.
