Just like toothpaste: fluoride radically improves the stability of perovskite solar cells

Researchers from the TU/e have discovered that adding a small amount of fluoride to perovskite solar cells significantly increases their stability. Solar cells made of perovskite hold much promise for the future of solar energy. The material is cheap, easy to produce and almost as efficient as silicon, the material traditionally used in solar cells. […]

Perovskite solar cell: interface makes the difference

Perovskite-based solar cells are the fastest-advancing solar technology to date. Since they were first used in 2009, perovskite solar cells have achieved high efficiencies (over 22% under standard solar irradiation) at low production costs. Although most of the perovskite components are optimized, there’s still room for improvement. Especially in reference to the Hole Transport Materials […]

Researchers Solve Major Challenge in Mass Production of Low-Cost Solar Cells

An international team of university researchers reports solving a major fabrication challenge for perovskite cells — the intriguing potential challengers to silicon-based solar cells. These crystalline structures show great promise because they can absorb almost all wavelengths of light. Perovskite solar cells are already commercialized on a small scale, but recent vast improvements in their […]
