We provide a complete illustration of dye-sensitized solar module fabrication by spray pyrolysis deposition (SPD) of a TiO2 colloid having ∼10 nm sized TiO2 nanoparticles. The process was first optimized for cell level fabrication, and the parameters (mainly the thickness) obtained from the study were subsequently used for module level fabrication. The best efficiency obtained at the cell level (area 0.2 cm2 and thickness of 12 μm) was 7.79% and that for the (12 cm × 12 cm) module was 3.2%. © 2014 the Partner Organisations.
