Abstract: Carbon quantum dots (CQDs) have attracted tremendous interest owing to their application in bioimaging, sensors, medicine and catalysis. Herein, CQDs were prepared from several carbon sources as sensitizers for solar cells. Of the CQDs prepared, bee‐pollen‐based CQDs (B‐CQDs) achieved the highest power conversion efficiency of 0.11 % under one sun illumination (AM 1.5).
