Donor-π-acceptor photosensitizers for NiO photocathodes that exhibit a broad spectral response across the visible region are presented. These enabled an increase in the photocurrent density of p-type dye-sensitized solar cells to 8.2 mA cm–2 and a tandem cell to be assembled which generated a photocurrent density of 5.15 mA cm–2.
