Flexible perovskite thin film solar cell graphene armor Korean scientists

Fraunhofer ISE

A team of South Korean researchers have created a graphene armored perovskite solar cell that maintains 94% of its original efficiency after being bent 5,000 times.

Perovskite thin-film solar cells have been hailed as the next generation of low-cost, high-efficiency photovoltaic power generation if durability challenges can be overcome. Graphene, a two-dimensional wonder material that is finding its way into everything from virus killing sports equipment to electromagnetic radiation shields for satellite electronics, may also be the breakthrough scientist...
