Systems and methods for cavity mode enhancement in dye-sensitized solar cells are provided. A dye-sensitized solar cell generally comprises a transparent substrate, an anode layer, an oxide layer, a dye layer, a cathode, and an electrolyte. The anode layer is deposited on a surface of the transparent substrate. The oxide layer is deposited on the anode layer and the dye is deposited on the oxide layer. A cathode is disposed adjacent to the dye layer and an electrolyte is disposed between the anode layer and the cathode.
