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.
