Perovskite solar cell technology has attracted significant global academic and industrial attentions, with the unprecedented efficiency boosting speed. One of the greatest challenges in the perovskite solar cell research is how to reduce the open circuit voltage loss towards S-Q limit, i.e. eliminating the non-radiative recombination loss.
A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has set a new record in the power conversion efficiency of solar cells made using perovskite and organic materials.
As the world moves toward implementing fully renewable energy and away from fossil fuels, research is ongoing into the optimization of technologies that will help to achieve a net zero carbon global economy.
A group of chemists from Kaunas University of Technology (KTU), Lithuania synthesised materials that were used for constructing a record-breaking perovskite solar module, with an efficiency of 21.4 per cent. This was achieved through the passivation of the active solar cell layer, which increases the efficiency of the cell and significantly improves its stability.
A research team has developed a new artificial photosynthesis device with remarkable stability and longevity as it converts sunlight and carbon dioxide into two promising sources of renewable fuels – ethylene and hydrogen.
As part of a collaborative study by Pavia University (Italy) and the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden at Technische Universität Dresden (Germany), scientists created an innovative technique to develop lead halide perovskite solar cells with efficiency like never before.
