Abstract

The field of solution‐processed photovoltaic cells is currently in its second spring. The dye‐sensitized solar cell is a widely studied and longstanding candidate for future energy generation. Recently, inorganic absorber‐based devices have reached new record efficiencies, with the benefits of all‐solid‐state devices. In this rapidly changing environment, this review sheds light on recent developments in all‐solid‐state solar cells in terms of electrode architecture, alternative sensitizers, and hole‐transporting materials. These concepts are of general applicability to many next‐generation device platforms.
