Dye sensitized solar cell (DSSC) is another type of solar cell that utilise the use of a Dye as to absorp more sun rays on solar cells and to direct solar irradiance in it as to circulate electron process like in a conventional diode. The components used to build a DSSC can be divided into 4 parts from making the substrate in this case the TiO2 as the anode and Carbon as the cathode, soaking it in Dye which act as absorption mechanism, adding of electrolyte and finally assembling them as a unit of solar cell. The process of solar absorption works as the photons from the sun molecular works similarly as in photosynthesis of green leaves. This paper proposed the use of Syzigium Oleina fruit as dye. Syzigium Oleina is a genus of flowering plants that belongs to the myrtle family, Myrtaceae. The genus comprises about 1100 species, and has a native range that extends from Africa and Madagascar through southern Asia east through the Pacific. The usage of Syzigium Oleina as Dye compared to blueberries shows higher solar irradiance absorption and can be used as alternative of other types of organic berries. © 2013 The Authors.
