Researcher develops new way to measure defects in perovskite
Solar energy is ending up being a progressively preferred source of renewable resource. Current solar panels with silicon as their main component are inexpensive and reliable. However, using a reasonably new material, perovskite, could dramatically improve the solar cell's effectiveness. TU/e researcher Bas van Gorkom developed a very sensitive technique for measuring defects in the crystal framework of perovskite. This is necessary, since a far better quality of crystal can improve the stability of perovskite.
