This article reports the fabrication of ordered arrays of ZnO nanorods and nanotubules by using a simple solution-based method and the application of these arrays as the working electrodes in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs) with an aim of offering superior electron transport conduits than in the conventional nanocrystalline nanoparticle films. The faster charge transport and lower recombination properties of one-dimensional (1D) nanostructure array electrodes as compared with those of the nanoparticle one observed and proved that such arrays of 1D nanostructure are the more promising electrode for DSCs in the future.
