Fraunhofer ISE Develops Printed In-Situ Perovskite Solar Cells to Save Resources

With a record efficiency of 12.6 percent, the researchers have now reached an important milestone in the field of printed photovoltaics. Besides silicon-based photovoltaics, which presently dominate the market, there are other materials, such as perovskite, that also show great potential. Scientists are testing the proof of concept of these new types of solar cells. […]

Potassium Offers Perovskite-Based Solar Cells an Efficiency Boost

A simple potassium solution could boost the efficiency of next-generation solar cells, by enabling them to convert more sunlight into electricity. An international team of researchers led by the University of Cambridge found that the addition of potassium iodide ‘healed’ the defects and immobilised ion movement, which to date have limited the efficiency of cheap […]

Relaxed Crystal Increases Solar Cell Efficiency

According to the researchers, the research represents a significant step toward stable perovskite-based solar cells for next generation solar-to-electricity and solar-to-fuel technologies. The researchers have discovered that constant illumination relaxes strain in perovskite’s crystal lattice, allowing it to uniformly expand in all directions. A collaborative research led by Rice University and Los Alamos National Laboratory found that […]

Electricity Producing Next-Generation Smart Windows Discovered

The researchers influenced the disclosure while examining the stage to the progress of the material, an inorganic perovskite. Researchers have found another material for cutting edge brilliant windows that not just obscure consequently when the Sun is too splendid yet in addition change over solar energy into power. Scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory […]
