High-Entropy Hybrid Perovskites Boost Solar Cell Efficiency

Jul 8, 2024 01:18 PM ET
  • Revolutionize solar energy with high-entropy hybrid perovskites - a game-changing material for efficient and stable solar cells.

Researchers from Zhejiang University, Westlake University, and other institutions have developed high-entropy hybrid perovskites for efficient and stable solar cells. The new material has a multicomponent single-phase structure that enhances phase stability at high temperatures. The perovskite film created with this material showed superior water and damp-heat resistance.

The high-entropy hybrid perovskite-based solar cell achieved a power conversion efficiency of 25.7%, higher than the reference device's 23.2%. The cell also retained over 98% of its initial efficiency after 1,000 hours. The researchers believe this novel material could be a universal strategy to improve perovskite solar cell performance in the future.
