Fluorine doped tin oxide (FTO) transparent conductive oxide (TCO) film for dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) was investigated. Haze of the incident light through TCO film was easily tuned by controlling the surface morphology of FTO deposited on tin doped indium oxide (ITO) nano-particle seed layer pre-coated on a glass substrate, and the light harvest within the cell was effectively enhanced with high haze TCO film. The conversion efficiency of DSSC fabricated with TCO film with the haze of 30.1% reached as high as 7.7%, attributing to the consequence of the effective light harvest with the scattering within the cell.
