When the electrolyte replacing material is an inorganic solid-state hole conductor like CuSCN  or CuI , the cells are called dye sensitized heterojunctions (DSHs), or interpenetrating heterojunctions (i-hets). The last step on the way from a Grätzel cell to an all solid-state solar cell is the replacement of the organic dye by a solid-state absorber like CdTe , a-Si , or CuInS2 ; the cells thus obtained are the so-called extremely thin absorber (ETA) cells . In most of these cells however, the hole conductor is just the metal contact which penetrates the pores like a hole conductor would do.
An example of a nano-structured solar cell. The hatched phase is an electron transporting material, for example, the fullerene-derivate PCBM, and is only contacted by the left-hand-side electrode. The white phase is a hole-transporting material, for example, the PPV derivate MDMO-PPV, and is only contacted by the right-hand-side electrode. The phenomena of photon absorption, generation and separation of an electron and a hole, and transport of the carriers to the electrodes are shown schematically.
In organic photovoltaic materials including most polymers and fullerenes, the assumption is justified; indeed, ambipolar conduction is rarely reported in these materials. Thus, we assume that the position of EFn(abs) in the p-absorber and of EFp(TiO2) in the TiO2 is irrelevant: we only need to know EFp(abs) and EFn(TiO2). We already know that EFn (TiO2 ) Ϫ EFp (absorber ) ϭ qVd (3) To determine the position of one of the two relevant Fermi levels, we express that the total charge should be zero in a unit cell of a periodic structure.
