Under standard global AM 1.5 solar conditions, the organic sensitizer is tested for other electrode using 4 [micro]m ZnO nanorod and 4 [micro]m ZnO : CdO nanocomposite electrode for better comparison to electrode efficiency. Dye sensitized solar cell using 4 [micro]m ZnO nanorod electrode exhibits a short-circuit photocurrent density ([J.sub.sc]) of 1.61 mA/[cm.sup.2], an open-circuit voltage ([V.sub.oc]) of 600 mV, and a fill factor (FF) of 0.60, corresponding to an overall conversion efficiency, [eta] of 0.58%.
