JEDDAH — Perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells hold the promise of power conversion efficiencies well above the theoretical limit of silicon alone. But their outdoor performance in a hot and sunny climate has not been fully investigated — until now.A team from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) have fabricated efficient, two-terminal monolithic perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells and tested them outdoors. The tandem device that has resulted from this research is both more stable than conventional perovskite cells and, importantly, optimized for use in industry.“Professor Stefaan De Wolf and his team have stolen ...read more...
