MIT, Standford scientists use machine learning for pervoskite solar cell development

Perovskites are a family of materials that are currently the leading contender to potentially replace today’s silicon-based solar photovoltaics. They hold the promise of panels that are far thinner and lighter, that could be made with ultra-high throughput at room temperature instead of at hundreds of degrees, and that are cheaper and easier to transport […]

Solar Power Technology Continues To Wait On the Promise Of Perovskite Cells

Scientists today are using perovskite materials, named after a little known 19th Century Russian mineralogist and nobleman Count Lev Perovski, to make solar cells more efficient and adaptable than ever before. The material was first discovered in Russia’s Ural Mountains in 1839 by Gustav Rose and became fairly common in later decades wherein it was […]

Perovskite Solar Cells, Coming Soon To a Product Near You

Perovskites, named after Russian mineralogist Lev Perovski who discovered the base material over 170 years ago in the Ural Mountains of Russia are found abundantly in the earth’s mantle and sometimes, surface deposits even. They have now found an interesting and potentially breakthrough application in solar power generation technology. Different from the traditional silicon wafers […]

New Precision Spray-Coating Enables Complex Perovskite Solar Cell Designs

Researchers have developed a new precision spray-coating method that enables complex perovskite solar cell designs and could be used to scale up for mass production. Perovskites, a highly promising alternative to the silicon which is used to make most of today’s solar cells, needs new manufacturing processes to make them practical for commercial production. And […]
