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 […]

University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) researchers have developed a simple processing technique that could cut the cost of organic photovoltaics and wearable electronics. The development by the UCSB team working with three other universities is a new technique for manufacturing single-layer organic polymer solar cells that might very well move organic photovoltaics into […]

University of New South Wales engineers in Australia have smashed the new perovskite compound’s world efficiency record. Perovskites are the hottest new material in solar cell design because flexible, cheap to produce and simple to make. Anita Ho-Baillie, a Senior Research Fellow at the Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics (ACAP) announced at the Asia-Pacific Solar […]

Physicists at the University of California – Berkeley have boosted the efficiency of perovskite that holds promise as base for next-generation solar cells. Perovskite solar cells are made of a mix of organic molecules and inorganic elements that together capture light and convert it into electricity, just like today’s more common silicon-based solar cells. Perovskite […]
