NREL leads in perovskite #solar, over 40 papers published last 3 yrs @ASES_Solar #solartoday

Potential of Perovskite Solar Cells Featured in Solar Today February 11, 2016 Familiar with perovskite solar cells? If not, you'll probably hear more about them soon. Perovskites are a family of materials receiving considerable attention by solar cell researchers due to the rapid rise of solar conversion efficiencies, increasing from about 4% to almost 22% in just six years. In an interview published in Solar Today (winter 2015 edition), Dr. Jao van de Lagemaat, director of the Chemistry and Nanoscience Center at the National Renewable Laboratory (NREL), highlighted various aspects of perovskites, which have received considerable attention by solar cell researchers at NREL and other institutions such as University of Oxford (England), Sungkyunkwan University (South Korea), and Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (Switzerland). In addition to the rapid rise of solar co...
