Perovskite Solar Cells

Perovskite Solar Cells:

Indian scientists at the International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials (ARCI), Hyderabad, have developed highly stable, low-cost Carbon-based perovskite solar cells (CPSCs).

  • These solar cells overcome the challenges of degradation during operation, making them suitable for large-scale commercialization.
  • Perovskite solar cells (PSCs) are a type of solar cell that utilizes perovskite materials as the light-harvesting active layer to convert sunlight into electricity.
  • The most commonly used perovskite material in solar cells is methylammonium lead iodide (MAPbI3).
  • Perovskite solar cells (PSCs) face stability issues when exposed to heat, moisture, and other environmental factors.
