Solar cells get growth boost

a) 105°C in air b) 115°C in air, c) 125°C in air, d) 105°C in Nitrogen, e) 115°C in Nitrogen, and f) 125°C in Nitrogen. Grain sizes on perovskite films are larger when prepared in air between 105 to 125 degrees centigrade than in a nitrogen atmosphere.
Researchers at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University’s (OIST) Energy Materials and Surface Sciences Unit have found that growing a type of film used to manufacture solar cells in ambient air gives it a growth boost. The finding, which could make manufacturing solar cells significantly cheaper, was published in Chemistry of Materials […] via WordPress
