Quantum dots enhance stability of solar-harvesting perovskite crystals

Quantum dots enhance stability of solar-harvesting perovskite crystals

Researchers have combined two emerging technologies for next-generation solar power — and discovered that each one helps stabilize the other. The resulting hybrid material is a major step toward reducing the cost of solar power while multiplying the ways it can be used.

Inorganic perovskite absorbers for use in thin-film solar cells

Inorganic perovskite absorbers for use in thin-film solar cells

Teams all over the world are working intensively on the development of perovskite solar cells. The focus is on what are known as metal-organic hybrid perovskites whose crystal structure is composed of inorganic elements such as lead and iodine as well as an organic molecule.

Solar cells (like people!) work better with caffeine

Solar cells (like people!) work better with caffeine

Scientists have found that caffeine improves the stability of materials under heat - a property known as thermal stability — of perovskite solar cells, which could someday replace traditional silicon-based solar cells.

The interface makes the difference in perovskites

The interface makes the difference in perovskites

A collaboration deepens the understanding of the impact that changing the materials in a perovskite solar cell has on its performance. The results will help rationalize the design of the components of cells, thus increasing their commercial appeal.

Mystery of negative capacitance in perovskite solar cells solved

Mystery of negative capacitance in perovskite solar cells solved

On the verge of outcompeting current thin-film solar cells, perovskite solar cells seem to embody an ideal solar cell: highly efficient and low-cost - if there was not the issue of a weak long-term stability, which remains a challenge.

Making solar cells can be like buttering bread

Making solar cells can be like buttering bread

Formamidinium lead iodide is a very good material for photovoltaic cells, but getting the correct and stable crystal structure is a challenge. The techniques developed so far have produced rather poor results. However, scientists have now cracked it - using a blade and a dipping solution.
