How to Make High Efficiency Stable Perovskite Solar Cells

Only a few groups in the world can reproduce greater than 20% efficiencies on cells architecture.

Professor Michael Saliba is a top world class researcher in the formulation of stable and high efficiency compositions that allow him to produce high-efficiency solar cells with high reproducibility.

Now you have a chance to share the insights and techniques necessary to prepare top quality cells. 

NIPHO20 attendees can join this workshop onsite at Alanda Room.

Perovskite solar cells (PSCs) are currently one of the most promising photovoltaic technologies for highly efficient and cost-effective solar energy production. In only a few years, an unprecedented progression of preparation procedures and material compositions delivered lab-scale devices that have now reached record power conversion efficiencies (PCEs) higher than 20%, competing with most established solar cell materials such as silicon, CIGS, and CdTe. However, despite a large number of researchers currently involved in this topic, only a few groups in the world can reproduce >20% efficiencies on a regular n–i–p architecture. In this work, a detailed protocol is presented for preparing PSCs in regular (n–i–p) and inverted (p–i–n) architectures with ≥20% PCE. This talks aims to provide a comprehensive, reproducible description of our device fabrication protocols. This is to encourage the practice of reporting detailed and transparent protocols that can be more easily reproduced by other laboratories. A better reporting standard may, in turn, accelerate the development of perovskite solar cells and related research fields. The detailed presentation is aimed to be interactive and encourages especially students to get involved and ask questions.
