Abstract
The photophysical behaviour of a triphenylamine-based organic dye sensitizer (Carbz-PAHTDTT) attached to alumina and titania nanoparticles (labelled Carbz-Al and Carbz-Ti, respectively) is examined in the absence and presence of the chenodeoxycholic acid (CDCA) coadsorber. The experiments are conducted in vacuo by suspending the target dye-sensitized nanoparticles within a quadrupole ion trap, where they are probed with laser radiation to obtain emission spectra and time-resolved excited state decay curves. For Carbz-Al, the dye's emission band is blue-shifted and the excited state lifetime is increased upon the coabsorption of CDCA, effects attributed to reduced dye aggregation. Compared to Carbz-Al, the Carbz-Ti excited state lifetimes are significantly shorter due to excited dye molecules injecting electrons into the titania conduction band. For Carbz-Ti, the electron injection quantum yields for the surfaces with CDCA (CDCA : dye = 25 : 1) and without CDCA are estimated to be 0.87 and 0.71, respectively. The gas-phase results demonstrate that Carbz-PAHTDTT dye aggregates are detrimental to the performance of a dye-sensitized solar cell.
