The Ultimate Guide to Making Perovskite Solar Cells
Over the past 10 years, perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have achieved record efficiencies of 25.5% single junction solar cells (as of 20211) and these efficiencies are rising impressively.
Glove Box (Glovebox) Uses, Leaks, and Design
Scientific glove boxes create a sealed environment for work that involves hazardous materials or samples that react with air. The main chamber of such a glove box is generally filled with an inert gas, usually Nitrogen.
Glove Box Installation
The Ossila Glove Box is designed to be easy to install and maintain, and is suitable for most laboratories. Its small footprint and quick set up also means that it is relatively portable and can be conveniently transferred between labs as required.
Glove Box Maintenance And Troubleshooting
The Ossila Glove Box (or glovebox) uses automatic purging and programmable leak tests making it easy to maintain an inert environment. However, there are a number of steps that you as the glove box user can take to ensure that the inert atmosphere remains intact.
Solar Cells: A Guide to Theory and Measurement
A solar cell is a device that converts light into electricity via the ‘photovoltaic effect’. They are also commonly called ‘photovoltaic cells’ after this phenomenon, and also to differentiate them from solar thermal devices.
Organic Photovoltaics vs. 2nd-Generation Solar Cell Technologies
Due to their high efficiency and well-established manufacture, crystalline silicon (c-Si) solar cells currently dominate the solar cell market.
Organic Photovoltaics vs 3rd-Generation Solar Cell Technologies
Whilst the majority of commercial solar cells are currently made using crystalline silicon (c-Si), thin-film alternatives have the potential to be cheaper, flexible, and more straightforward to produce.
Perovskites and Perovskite Solar Cells - An Introduction
The rapid improvement of perovskite solar cells has made them the rising star of the photovoltaics world and of huge interest to the academic community.
This guide describes our recommended fabrication routine for perovskite solar cells using Ossila I101 Perovskite Precursor Ink which is designed to be used with a bottom ITO/PEDOT:PSS anode and a top PC70BM/Ca/Al cathode.
Perovskite Solar Cells: Methods of Increasing Stability & Durability
This article aims to introduce some methods that have been adapted to improve perovskite solar cell stability.
Perovskite Solar Cells: Causes of Degradation
Perovskite solar cells show impressive efficiencies and offer “a different kind of solar cell” that could be cheap to manufacture and could be semi-transparent, lightweight, and flexible.
Perovskite Solar Cells: Passivation Techniques
Perovskite solar cells have demonstrated impressive device metrics, including open-circuit voltages of up to 1.2V. However, in order for PSCs to achieve their theoretical best efficiencies, all non-essential recombination pathways should be eliminated.
Our technical support team receive enquiries about perovskite solar cell or photovoltaic fabrication on a regular basis. For your convenience, we've collated some of the most common questions here which you may find helpful when using I101 or I201 perovskite precursor inks.

Synthesis of Perovskite Quantum Dots
Synthesising high quality quantum dots (QDs) can be a complex process.
During the original development of all-inorganic perovskite quantum dots, several synthetic routes were attempted in order to find a process that can reliably produce stable and defect resistant dots. Two major routes to the synthesis have now been developed: room temperate synthesis and synthesis by hot injection.
Perovskite Quantum Dots: A Rapidly Expanding Area of Research
Over the last two decades, quantum dots have elicited a considerable amount of excitement and attention from both research scientists and the media. When Sony launched their XBR line of televisions in 2013, quantum dots successfully moved from pure research into the commercial sphere. Despite this, there are still some barriers to overcome before we can expect to see widespread adoption of quantum dot-based products.
