Next-gen perovskite solar cells made stable by metal oxide "sandwich"
Los Angeles CA (SPX) Oct 21, 2015
UCLA professor Yang Yang, member of the California NanoSystems Institute, is a world-renowned innovator of solar cell technology whose team in recent years has developed next-generation solar cells constructed of perovskite, which has remarkable efficiency converting sunlight to electricity. Despite this success, the delicate nature of perovskite - a very light, flexible, organic-inorganic hybrid material - stalled further development toward its commercialized use. When exposed to air, perovskite ... read more
