Abstract

Photocurrent and photovoltage generation using phloxin B dye in aqueous and micellar medium at different concentrations have been studied in a photogalvanic cell. The photopotential and photocurrent generated were 1135.0 mV and 260.0 μA, respectively. The observed solar energy conversion efficiency with CTAB surfactant was 0.64 % and maximum power of the cell was 66.72 mW. The output of the cell was sensitive to various parameters, like dye concentration, reductant concentration, pH, light intensity, electrode area and diffusion length. Current-potential characteristics studied by I-V curve of the cell and the mechanism of cell photovoltage generation have been presented in the paper.
