Abstract

A photoelectric conversion device comprising an electrically conductive substrate having thereon a particulate semiconductor particles-containing layer having adsorbed a dye, a charge transporting layer, and a counter electrode, wherein the particulate semiconductor particles-containing layer has adsorbed two or more dyes. Preferably, at least one of the dyes has a maximum incident photon to current conversion efficiency at a wavelength of 300 nm or longer and shorter than 600 nm, and at least another dye has a maximum incident photon to current conversion efficiency at a wavelength of 600 to 850 nm, each when adsorbed alone in the particulate semiconductor particles-containing layer.
