Dye-sensitized TiO2 solar cells assembled with a polymer electrolyte were investigated, aiming at the construction of an 8 V solar module. The individual solar cells were assembled with 4.5 cm(2) active area and were characterized Under Outdoor conditions, exhibiting an average efficiency of 0.9% per cell (at 12:00 noon), The solar module was built by connecting 13 cells in series. The integrated average daily power was estimated to be 183 mW. The present paper discusses the performance of the individual cells and the module. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. (AU)
