The next generation of solar cell seeks to enhance both efficiency and cost-effectiveness through the use of new materials and simple processes. Solution-processed and printable technologies, using semiconductor nanocrystals, organic molecules and hybrid materials, offer an attractive route towards achieving these grand goals. These technologies need to well understand the basic chemistry, surface and interface. This presentation is focused on the development of dye sentitized solar cell and perovskite solar cell using nanostructured materials and hybrid material. Colloidal quantum structure and plasmonic nanostructures et al are employed for multicolored, multifunctional, and next-generation photovoltaic devices that go beyond the traditional material and solar cells. The solution and coordination chemistry will be in detail invesitigated to reduce the efficiency-cost-stability gap towards commecialization.
