New Guide Available: Perovskite Solar Cells - Causes of Degradation


Posted on Mon, Feb 25, 2019 by Ashley Wong


In the field of photovoltaics, it is common knowledge that perovskite solar cell stability and durability still has room for improvement. Although recent studies have shown promising advancements, perovskite solar cells still do not reach the standards defined by the International Electrotechnical Commision (performing well under non-lab conditions, and withstanding those conditions for over 1000 hours consistently).

As such, the durability of perovskite solar cells needs to be improved further before they can competitively enter the current market. The first step is towards this is to gain a thorough understanding of the exact factors that cause the perovskite crystal to undergo degradation.

These factors are explored and discussed in our latest guide - Perovskite Solar Cells: Causes of Degradation.
