Scientist advance slot-die coated perovskite solar cells and also ink properties
Researchers from Germany's Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and also HTW Berlin have taken a look at exactly how precursor inks influence the quality of perovskite thin films. The best cells were scaled approximately minimodule dimension. The team revealed that when slot-die covering the halide perovskite layers on large locations, ribbing results may occur yet can be protected against by adjusting the precursor ink's rheological properties.

Perovskite solar cells from the slot die coater represent a step towards industrial production
Steel halide perovskites are taken into consideration to be a specifically affordable and also appealing course of products for next-generation solar components. Perovskite solar cells can be produced with finishing processes making use of liquid inks made from forerunner materials and different solvents. After finish, the solvents evaporate as well as the perovskites crystallize to create a more or less homogeneous layer.

NTU Singapore Scientists Develop Eco-friendly Capping Materials for Perovskite Solar Cells
Scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) have found a way to stabilize perovskite solar cells using non-toxic metal-based capping materials. This paves the way for commercial use of perovskite cells, which, despite superior efficiency and lower production costs, contain lead, posing an environmental threat when decomposed. The researchers used the full precursor (FP) solution method, which allowed them to synthesize the capping layer of solar cells without lead. The zinc-based compound, PEA2ZnX4, was the most effective among the materials tested, and the process was more efficient than the half precursor (HP) method.
