In DSSC, fundamental process conditions of upper electrode were established and low cost-oriented method for TCO layer was proposed. Especially, prominent properties, that is, open-circuit voltage of 500mV or more and short-circuit current of $25mA/cm^2$ were yielded by 2-step sintering of semiconductive powder layer. High efficiency-DSSC was able to fabricate without high cost-semiconductor apparatus in common laboratory conditions.
