UNIST hits new world efficiency record with perovskite solar cells
As you’re probably already aware, perovskite solar cells have the greatest potential of being the most prominent source of solar energy in the near future.
A recent study, affiliated with Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) finds key to produce a new cost-efficient way to fabricate inorganic-organic hybrid perovskite solar cells (PSCs) which sets a new world-record efficiency performance of 22.1 % in small cells and 19.7 percent in 1-square-centimeter cells.
Atomic movies may help explain why perovskite solar cells are more efficient
The Science Solar cells made from specialized compounds, with the crystal structure of the mineral perovskite, have captured scientists’ imaginations. The cells are inexpensive and easy to make. Even more intriguing, the efficiency at which perovskite solar cells convert light to electricity has...
This unusual material could vastly improve solar cells — if it can expand its reach
Perovskite solar cells can work well even when they’re very thin — and so can be printed onto plastics and other flexible materials.
Perovskite solar cells promise cheaper and efficient solar energy, with enormous potential for commercialization. But even though they have been shown to achieve over 22% power-conversion efficiency, their operational stability still fails market requirements. Despite a number of proposed...
Holy Hot Polarons, Batman! New Perovskite Solar Cell Shows Promise
A new low-temperature solution printing technique allows fabrication of high-efficiency perovskite solar cells with large crystals intended to minimize current-robbing grain boundaries. The meniscus-assisted solution printing (MASP) technique boosts power conversion efficiencies to nearly 20...
