Understanding degradation of perovskites

Degradation of perovskite has been a well-developed topic on this blog. Actually, it represents one of the greatest challenges to address. Scientists try to tackle the degradation issues from many approach angles. Here I showcase two articles I’ve read in the past months about how the lattice evolves and how it leads to cell degradation: […]

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 a crystalline lattice. Two weeks ago, at the annual Perovskite Solar Cells and Optoelectronics Conference (#PSCO17) in Oxford, one of the main topic developed was the exceptional defect tolerance found in the […]
