Abstract

Solution processed perovskite solar cells are an exciting development in the field of photovoltaics achieving power conversion efficiencies of over 20%. Nevertheless, stability issues are still limiting the successful entry of this technology into the PV market. Rapid degradation has been observed a...

description Solution processed perovskite solar cells are an exciting development in the field of photovoltaics achieving power conversion efficiencies of over 20%. Nevertheless, stability issues are still limiting the successful entry of this technology into the PV market.
