UK Study shows storing Perovskite Materials at Low Temp extends lifespan

In a paper published this year, researchers at the University of Sheffield, UK, describe a novel method to add three to four more months to the average lifespan of perovskite materials, thereby throwing light on new ways to cut down wastage in the manufacture of solar cell technologies. Entitled Perovskites on Ice: An Additive-Free Approach to […]
