EU PVSEC: More stable perovskites remain a candidate for silicon tandem cells

EU PVSEC: More stable perovskites remain a candidate for silicon tandem cells

Within just a few years, the efficiency of Perovskite solar cells has skyrocketed. Research on perovskite solar cells has made progress, but there is still a long way to go for a highly efficient tandem with a conventional crystalline silicon cell. At the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference (EU PVSEC) in Munich last week, the PV-Lab at the Institute of Microengineering (IMT) in Neuchâtel, Switzerland presented a 1.4 cm² small, monolithically stacked silicon-perovskite tandem cell with an efficiency of 20.5%, a significant increase over the 16% value for a monolithic tandem that IMT showed at the previous EU PVSEC in Hamburg last September. Within just a few years, the efficiency of Perovskite solar cells has skyrocketed; the record for a lab cell is currently held by a group at the Korean Research Institute of Chemical Technology with 22.1%. Perovskite is an orga...
