Perovskite solar cell with ultra-long stability
Perovskites are the excellent hope for additional increasing the performance of solar modules in the future. Until now, their short life span has actually been thought about the greatest obstacle to their useful use, but this might soon change. In the existing problem of the journal Nature Energy, scientists from the Helmholtz Institute Erlangen-Nuremberg of the Forschungszentrum Jülich have offered a variant that stands out for its special stability In examinations at elevated temperature level and also lighting over 1450 hrs of operation, the perovskite-based cell retained 99 percent of its first effectiveness.
