Large location perovskite solar cell with copper steel call
An Indian research group has actually built a perovskite cell that has a steel contact based upon copper, as opposed to expensive gold. The tool revealed almost the exact same effectiveness as a cell established with gold metallization but its security was much reduced. In order to conquer this problem, the researchers suggest making use of a metal get in touch with constructed from a thin layer of gold and a thicker, overlying copper layer.
