Dye-sensitized solar cells achieve unprecedented stability with solvent-free electrolytes

Last week, Michael Grätzel at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) published a new milestone in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs), also known as Grätzel cells, after presaging these new results at the recent Materials Research Society 2008 Spring Meeting (see the March 20, 2008 LRSJ)...
