“A New Record For Perovskite Solar Cell Efficiency”

In a study published in Science, researchers have described a cost-efficient way to produce inorganic-organic hybrid perovskite solar cells (PSCs) that can reach record-breaking efficiencies.

“This study combines the newly-synthesized photoelectrode material and the hot-pressing method to lower the manufacturing cost to less than half of the existing silicon solar cells,” said Seok, corresponding author of the paper. “This study helped us realize PSCs with a steady-state power conversion efficiency of 21.2 percent and excellent photostability.” “This achievement, realized by the unique technology of domestic researchers, has surpassed the conventional low-efficiency and stability limit of next-generation solar cell technology.”
