New Organic Solar Cells Show Highest Certified Conversion Efficiency

Scientists at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg have a designed a new organic, single-junction solar cell that has set a new record in terms of performance. With the help of a series of optimizations, the researchers have achieved an efficiency of 12.25% on a surface area of one square centimeter. This non-fullerene-based cell is a new benchmark in the field of organic solar cells, which have continued to witness vast advancements over

Loss of Procedures in Perovskite Solar Cells to Make It Efficient

Perovskite solar cells that are carriers of charge can be lost through recombination occurring at interface defect sites. While recombining the defect sites within the perovskite layer limits the performance of the solar cells at present. Teams from the University of Potsdam and the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin reached the conclusion through accurate quantitative measurements on 2 perovskite cells which uses photoluminescence. Even solar cells made from perfect miracle material is not
