Separated into its constituent parts, this is an illustrated example of photovoltaic layers in a single, high-performance perovskite solar cell.

Over the last two decades, perovskite crystal lattices have been held as extremely promising materials in photovoltaic and light-emitting devices. This family of minerals exhibits unique electrical properties currently being utilized in solar cells.

A Penn State-led team has created a faster, more cost-effective process to fabricate larger perovskite devices than previously possible. Their rep...
