In a paper published in Science Advances, physicists Professor Sum Tze Chien from NTU and Professor Maxim Pshenichnikov […]

University of Surrey researchers believe their new technique has produced the highest performing inverted perovskite solar cell ever recorded. Perovskite based cells are widely expected to be the next generation of solar cells, offering similar power conversion efficiency (PCE) performance, but at a much lower cost than today’s dominant crystalline silicon based solar cells. In […]

Rice University scientists have discovered a novel phenomenon of light-induced lattice expansion in perovskite materials. The lattice expansion cures bulk and interface defects, which leads to an enhancement of perovskite optoelectronic properties. In a collaboration led by Rice University and Los Alamos National Laboratory found that to be the case with a perovskite compound touted […]

Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) scientists have developed a solar-panel material that can cut down on perovskite based photovoltaic costs. Meanwhile the new cells achieve a competitive power conversion efficiency of 20.2%. Today, some of the most promising solar cells today use light-harvesting films made from perovskites – a group of materials that share […]

Stanford University researchers have stacked perovskites onto a conventional silicon solar cell dramatically improving the overall efficiency of the cell. Study co-author Michael McGehee, a professor of materials science and engineering at Stanford said, “We’ve been looking for ways to make solar panels that are more efficient and lower cost. Right now, silicon solar cells […]
