We review the status of the understanding of dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC), emphasizing clear physical models with predictive power, and discuss them in terms of the chemical and electrical potential distributions in the device. Before doing so, we place the DSSC in the overall picture of photovoltaic energy converters, reiterating the fundamental common basis of all photovoltaic systems as well as their most important differences.
