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 J├╝lich 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 […]

Queen Mary University of London researchers have developed a new process for producing stable perovskite materials to create more efficient solar cells. Currently crystalline silicon is the most widely used material for solar cells. However, over the last decade, perovskite solar cells, made from metal halide perovskite materials, have shown promise to make cheaper, and […]

University of Basel researchers continue to improve the performance dye sensitized solar cells with sensitizers using iron – a commonly available and environmentally friendly metal. Solar energy plays an important role in the fight against climate change as a substitute for fossil fuels. Dye-sensitized solar cells promise to be a low-cost supplement to the photovoltaic […]
