Solar cell advance

UK-Japan News December 2021

Scientists from the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, the Diamond Light Source synchrotron facility in Didcot, Oxfordshire, and the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology in Japan have conducted breakthrough collaborative work. According to an article posted in Saur Energy International on 23 November, the research—published on the online news source Nature Nanotechnology—offers explanations for why perovskite materials are tolerant of defects in their structure. It is said that these findings will allow the project’s scientists to further refine how perovskite solar cells are made.
