Tiny tweaks for big wins in solar cells

Changes in composition are shown to affect light-harvesting layer crystallization and perovskite solar cell efficiency.


​Solar cells that rely on perovskites to harvest sunlight are bound to gain in energy conversion efficiency thanks to an atomic-level understanding of the structure-property relationship of these photovoltaic materials. Researchers from the KAUST Solar Center monitored the impact of compositional changes on the structural organization and photovoltaic properties of perovskite thin films in situ12.
