Gaining new insight into solar cell materials
Hybrid halide perovskites have drawn a lot of interest in the solar cell sector because of their promise as a low-cost and industry-scalable technology. Despite the progress made, there remain issues related to the materials’ optimal chemical composition, ion migration, scalable fabrication routes, device architecture, and stability in operation. The EU-funded PROPHET project aims to directly relate the optoelectronic behaviour of metal halide perovskites to their chemical and morphological properties. It will achieve this by investigating their photophysics on a range of different lengths and time scales. This will provide new understanding and more in-depth knowledge on the properties of halide perovskites, leading to better guidelines for material choices and film processing.
