Nanostructured materials play an important role in improving the power conversion efficiency and practicability of dye-sensitized solar cells. Development of novel nanostructured materials for use in transparent conductive substrates, photoanodes, electrolytes, dyes, and counter-electrodes of dye-sensitized solar cells has been fast growing in the past few years. The present session seeks contributions focusing on preparation, characterization, and applications of nanostructured materials in the five main components of dye sensitized solar cells mentioned above. Papers concerning the development of flexible transparent conductive substrates, photoanodes of composite nanostructures, solid state and low volatility electrolytes, quantum dots based and organic dyes, and counter-electrode materials other/cheaper than Pt, are particularly welcomed.
