Universities of Portsmouth, Southampton and Bath researchers have now developed a way to adjust the properties of the transport layers to encourage the ionic defects within the perovskite to move in such a way that they suppress recombination and lead to more efficient charge extraction – increasing the proportion of the light energy falling on […]

Kennesaw State University has a humming laboratory building tiny solar cells – as researchers strive to develop better photovoltaic technologies. Sandip Das, assistant professor of electrical engineering in the Southern Polytechnic College of Engineering and Engineering Technology, along with a team of three undergraduate research assistants, has recently fabricated the delicate solar cells, which are […]

Brown University researchers report a method for making perovskite cells larger while maintaining efficiency. Perovskite solar cells are cheaper to make than traditional silicon cells and their electricity conversion efficiency is improving rapidly. To be commercially viable, perovskite cells need to scale up from lab size. Researchers have reported efficiency in perovskite cells of higher […]
