Three different carbon-based counter electrodes are investigated in light of catalytic activities such as electrochemical frequencies and interface impedances. We fabricated carbon-based counter electrodes of dye-sensitized solar cells {[DSSCs]} using graphene, single-walled carbon nanotubes {[SWNTs],} and {graphene-SWNT} composites by electrophoretic deposition method. We observed the optical and electrochemical properties of the carbon-based counter electrodes. The {DSSC} with the graphene-deposited counter electrode demonstrated the best conversion efficiency of 5.87% under {AM} 1.5 and 1 sun condition. It could be utilized for a low-cost and high-throughput process for {DSSCs.}
