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 […]
