Proposal: Graphene Sheets with Halide Perovskite Layers

Some months ago, I had conversations with some researchers to propose them a graduate project proposal that could be done within the scope

Investigating Carbon Nanotubes

When we think of the long term future for perovskite solar cells, there are basically two strategies. The first is to enhance their

Understanding degradation of perovskites

Degradation of perovskite has been a well developed topic on this blog. Actually, it represents one of the greatest challenge to adress. Scientists

Defect tolerance within halide perovskite

The properties of crystalline semiconductors, and particularly those giving rise to the photoelectric effect, are mainly due to the presence of defects inside

Are DSSC still growing ?

First reported in 1991 by Prof. Michael Graetzel from EPFL, Lausanne (Switzerland), Dye sensitised Solar Cells (DSSC) have known important developments in the

Exploring Excitonic Binding Energy in Perovskites

As usually described on this blog, perovskite solar cells represent a topic that constantly needs optimization. Many studies try to bring new elements

Perspective: Is Perovksite Fever Over?

I started this blog two month ago to share my opinion and enthusiasm about third generation photovoltaic technologies. In fact last year I

Tuning Quandum Dot Solar Cells

In July, Dr. Ahmad R. Kirmani published a very interesting article the day he defended his PhD. He has worked with Quantum Dot

Engineering interfaces with gold nanoparticles

When discussing interfaces issues with perovskite solar cells, Prof. Iván Mora-Seró from Institute of Advanced Materials, Castelló (Spain) is one of the scientists

The challenges of encapsulation

OPV stability, an intriguing mechanical approach

Two weeks ago, we discussed the stability issues of Perovskite Solar Cells. I invite you to keep connection with stability, but with organic

The principles of organic solar cells

Organic and perovksite photovoltaics are the solar cell research fields with the greatest interest from the community. Many articles are published each week about

Stay positive about stability of perovskite solar cells!

Some weeks ago, I had a conversation of deep interest with Dr. Tomas Leijtens from Stanford University. Tomas has an important research expertise
