Counter electrodes (CEs) are fundamentally important components of quantum dot sensitized solar cells (QDSSCs), helping to transfer electrons from external circuit to electrolyte and acting as catalysts. In this work, Co 0.85 Se/RGO composite films were synthesized via one step solvothermal process. X ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscope ( SEM and energy dispersive spectrometer EDS were utilized to characterize the structure, morphology and elemental distribution of the composite CEs. The photovoltaic studies revealed that the composi te CEs could yield PCE reaching 2.6% when assembled with CdS/CdSe/TiO 2 photoanodes for QDSSCs. EIS and Tafel polarization indicated that the enhanced performances were due to combined high catalytic properties of Co 0.85 Se with better electron conductivity of RGO..
