Understanding the love-hate relationship of halide perovskites with the sunlight
Solar cells made of perovskite go to the facility of much current solar research. The product is cheap, easy to generate and practically as efficient as silicon, the material generally utilized in solar cells. However, perovskite cells have a love-hate-relationship with the sun. The light that they require to create electrical power, additionally hinders the quality of the cells, drastically limiting their performance and security with time. Research study by scientists at the Eindhoven University of Technology and also universities in China and the United States currently sheds new light on the root causes of this deterioration and paves the way for developing brand-new perovskite compositions for the utmost steady solar cells.
