The work solved a long-standing conundrum in making stable, efficient solar panels out of halide perovskites. The effort took finding […]

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 […]

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 […]

Rice University researchers have integrated high-efficiency perovskite solar cells and electrode catalysts into an efficient, low-cost device that splits water to produce hydrogen fuel. The platform developed by the Brown School of Engineering lab of Rice materials scientist Jun Lou integrates catalytic electrodes and perovskite solar cells that, when triggered by sunlight, produce electricity. The […]

Northern Illinois University researchers are reporting on a potential breakthrough in the development of hybrid perovskite solar cells. The scientists developed a technique to sequester the lead used to make perovskite solar cells and minimize potential toxic leakage. Working with the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado, the […]
