Solar cell is one of the key technologies in this century because this has possibility to clear energy problems. We tried to pattern good titania layer of dye-sensitized solar cell (DSC) utilizing electrostatic inkjet. The electrostatic inkjet has good merit; that is ability to eject highly viscous liquid. We applied the merit for patterning titania paste on fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) glass. In this paper, we investigated fundamental characteristics to pattern titania layer on FTO glass because efficiency depends on thickness of titania layer.
