Project description

English EN

Unravelling the role of point defects on metal halide perovskite performance

Metal halide perovskites possess unique features that make them useful for solar cell applications. Research on this material has rapidly improved its efficiency of light conversion into electrical energy up to 25 % – equivalent to state-of-the-art silicon solar cells. Despite its outstanding properties, it has point defects that seem to adversely impact its efficiency. The EU-funded OptEIon project has been established to study these poorly understood defects. Researchers will study the transient response of devices with different perovskite materials to measure defect location and time evolution, factors contributing to recombination losses in solar cells. Project findings are expected to significantly help in the design of more efficient and stable solar cells as well as optoelectronic devices.
