  • Publication number: 20200293135
    Abstract: An input device includes: a photoelectric conversion cell; a touch sensor that faces the photoelectric conversion cell and includes a substrate; and a display unit that is visible when viewing the touch sensor and the photoelectric conversion cell in a thickness direction of the substrate. The photoelectric conversion cell includes: a transparent electrode substrate disposed on a touch sensor side; a counter substrate that is disposed on a side facing away from the touch sensor, with respect to the transparent electrode substrate, and faces the transparent electrode substrate; a power generation portion that is disposed between the transparent electrode substrate and the counter substrate and contains a dye; and a non-power generation portion that is disposed adjacent to the power generation portion and overlaps with the display unit when viewing the power generation portion and the display unit in the thickness direction of the substrate.
