Michigan State University (MSU) scientists report a design for see-through solar materials that can be applied to windows representing a massive source of untapped energy and could harvest as much power as bigger, bulkier rooftop solar units. The team reporting in Nature Energy suggest the see-through solar materials can be applied to windows that represent […]

Scientists have greatly improved the operational stability of perovskite solar cells. The devices lost less than 5 percent performance when subjected to a crucial accelerated aging test during which they were exposed for more than 1,000 hours to full sunlight at 60° C. The Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) team introduced cuprous thiocyanate protected […]

St John’s College, University of Cambridge, researchers have quantified the astonishingly high speeds at which future perovskite solar cells would have to operate in order to stretch what are presently seen as natural limits on their energy conversion efficiency. The study investigating perovskite photovoltaic suggests that these could achieve unprecedented levels of super-efficiency. But to […]

Scientists in South Korea have developed a new cost-efficient way to produce inorganic -organic hybrid perovskite solar cells (PSCs) setting a new world-record efficiency performance of 22.1 percent in small cells and 19.7 percent in 1-square-centimeter cells. This breakthrough comes from a research conducted by Distinguished Professor Sang-Il Seok of Energy and Chemical Engineering at […]

Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have devised a new low-temperature solution printing technique allows fabrication of high-efficiency perovskite solar cells. The technique uses large crystals intended to minimize current-robbing grain boundaries. The meniscus-assisted solution printing (MASP) technique boosts power conversion efficiencies to nearly 20 percent by controlling crystal size and orientation. The process, which uses […]
