It reveals that the electron transport rates of the three cells measured by IMPS are in order of TiO2 NP , ZnO NWÀNP composite , ZnO NW array, which is consistent with the order of Deff in the three anodes obtained from EIS measurements. In comparison with ZnO NW anode, the electron transit times decrease by the bottom-up growth of NPs within the interstices of the ZnO NW anode. Nevertheless, the electron transport rates in the ZnO NWÀNP composite anode are significantly faster than those in TiO2 NP anode.
