Perovskite photovoltaic cells hit new world efficiency record

Engineers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney, Australia, have smashed the world efficiency record for perovskite photovoltaic (PV) cells. The 12.1% efficiency rating was for a 16 cm2 perovskite solar cell, the largest single perovskite photovoltaic cell certified with the highest energy conversion efficiency, and was independently confirmed by the international […]
