A Few Notes on Photo-induced Phase Segregation

Tandem solar cells are a very promising technology that would allow to overpass the Shockley-Queisser efficiency limit for photovoltaic devices. They can be

Band-gap Tuning for Tandem Perovskites

Tuning the active materials for the engineering of tandem solar cells is an arising field of research among the perovskite community. In this

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

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

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

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

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
