The breakthrough invention is expected to greatly accelerate the commercialization of perovskite photovoltaic technology, providing a promising alternative to silicon solar cells. The team’s […]

Researchers at The Institute of Photonic Sciences report on a novel disorder-engineering technique for inorganic solar cells that achieves a record-breaking power conversion efficiency. Now displayed over roof tops and in solar farms, silicon-based solar cells are, so far, one of the most efficient systems in generating electricity from sunlight, but their fabrication can be […]

A National University of Singapore research team has set a new record in the power conversion efficiency of solar cells made using perovskite and organic materials. Their latest work demonstrated a power conversion efficiency of 23.6%, approaching that of conventional silicon solar cells. This technological breakthrough paves the way for flexible, light-weight, low cost and […]

University of Cambridge researchers have developed a method to stabilize a promising material known as perovskite for cheap solar cells, without compromising its near-perfect performance. The researchers used an organic molecule as a ‘template’ to guide perovskite films into the desired phase as they form. Their results are reported in the journal Science. Perovskite materials […]

Researchers from the Helmholtz Institute Erlangen-Nuremberg of the Forschungszentrum Jülich have presented a perovskite solar cell variant that stands out for its special stability. Perovskites are the great hope for further increasing the efficiency of solar modules in the future. Until now, their short service life has been considered the biggest hurdle to their practical […]
