Additive for improved stability of perovskites against water
Project ID: D2019-50BackgroundPerovskites are commonly used in photovoltaics, LEDs, and water splitting devices. Despite success in increasing cell efficiencies using perovskites, their instability against moisture limits their practical application. Incorporating hydrophobic materials into the perovskite has been used to mitigate this problem, but...
Inexpensive, Earth-Abundant, and Tunable Hole Transport Material for CdTe Solar Cells
Project ID: D2017-08Background Photovoltaic (PV) cells have been produced with a wide variety of materials for each functional layer. The typical PV is a substrate layer coated with a semiconductor layer and two ohmic contacts. Thin film solar cells use a thin absorbing layer, such as Cadmium telluride (CdTe). CdTe is the most eco-friendly, high efficiency,...
