Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne researchers are pushing the limits of perovskite solar cell performance by exploring the best way to grow these crystals. On the other side of the world scientists at Hong Kong Polytechnic University report they have successfully developed perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells with the world’s highest power conversion efficiency of 25.5%. […]

University of Toronto engineers have grown large and pure perovskite crystals. Perovskite crystals are an emerging family of solar-absorbing materials that could clear the way for cheaper and more efficient solar panels and LEDs. These materials are particularly good at absorbing visible light, but had never been thoroughly studied in their purest form: as perfect […]

Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University have experimentally demonstrated a new model for photovoltaic solar cell construction with perovskite crystals.  The new idea may ultimately make photovoltaic cells less expensive, easier to manufacture and more efficient at harvesting energy from the sun. The study was led by professor Andrew M. Rappe and […]
