Abstract

This topic reviews random walk Monte Carlo simulation models of charge transport in DSSC. The main electron transport approaches used are covered. Monte Carlo methods and results are explained, addressing the continuous time random walk model developed for transport in disordered materials in the context of the large number of trap states present in the electron transporting material. Multiple timescale MC models developed to look at the morphology dependence of electron transport are described. The concluding section looks at future applications of these methods and the related MC models for polymer blend cells.
