Researchers produce new materials that could increase the stability of perovskite solar cells
A group of chemists from Kaunas University of Technology in Lithuania, the programmers of numerous development developments in the solar power area, suggested yet an additional service to raise the stability and also efficiency of perovskite solar elements. They synthesized a new class of carbazole-based cross-linkable materials, which are resistant to various environmental effects, including strong solvents made use of in the production of solar cells.

New materials for extremely high-efficiency perovskite solar cells
A team of chemists from Kaunas University of Technology (KTU), Lithuania synthesized materials that were utilized for building a record-breaking perovskite solar module, with an efficiency of 21.4 percent. This was attained with the passivation of the active solar cell layer, which boosts the efficiency of the cell as well as substantially boosts its stability.
