Abstract: In this work, we investigated the dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) using photoanode, which were fabricated directly from electrospinning of TiO2 nanofibres onto the substrate. The electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and current–voltage diagram were used to analyse electron transport in electrospun nanofibres and determine their applicability in DSSCs. In order to improve the short-circuit photocurrent of fabricated cells, we treated the electrospun TiO2 electrode with the TiCl4 aqueous solution. The modification of the photoelectrode significantly improves the power conversion efficiency (over 26%) of the solar cells attributed to the higher electron lifetime (τ ) and reduction in recombination processes as indicated by the EIS of the solar cells.
