Researchers solve perovskites puzzle for better solar cells

in Local News/School/Science/Technology

Published in Science, the research led by The University of Toledo, Ohio, in collaboration with the University of Washington, University of Toronto, Northwestern University and Empa (Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology) solved the problem with the durability of perovskite solar cells.

“Perovskite solar cells offer a route to lowering the cost of solar electricity given their high-power conversion efficiencies and low manufacturing cost,” said Dr Yanfa Yan, UToledo Distinguished University Professor of physics and a member of the UToledo Wright Center for Photovoltaics Innovation and Commercialization. “However, we needed to strengthen the emerging solar cell technology’s endurance during outdoor operation.”
