Discovery could lead to increased stability of next-generation solar cells

Scientists have uncovered the mechanism that causes new solar cells to break down, and suggest a potential solution, says a report from Imperial College London. Solar cells harness energy from the sun but face challenges from costly manufacturing processes and poor efficiency. The research team showed how the selection of a crucial layer within the perovskite (material developed for next-generation solar cells) can mitigate degradation under ambient conditions and increase stability. This could lead to the design of more stable high-performance tin perovskites that show potential as new solar cells.
