How to fabricate high efficient perovskite solar cells?

  • Post comments:0 Comments

My experience on Perovskites solar cells (PSCs) comes from IER-UNAM, where I had the opportunity to take a 1-week course with Dra. Hailin research group. Here, we developed some MAPbI3 Perovskite solar cells with regular n-i-p architecture. Due to the fabrication protocol they were following, we could develop PSCs of up to 12% in our first attempt. Workshop - Development of Hybrid Perovskite Solar Cells - IER-UNAM, June 2019. Imagine…

Looking for PV-Lab (Photovoltaic Labs ) on the web I found this video which explains the process of the development of silicon (Si) solar cells. It seems interesting so I want to share it with you. The most efficient silicon solar cells in 2020 are developed using Si-heterojunctions (26.7% lab and 24.4% module) [1]. The junction is formed between the crystalline silicon (Eg = 1.12 eV ) and amorphous silicon…

Talking about strategies for high efficiency kesterite solar cells

  • Post comments:0 Comments

Dr. Edgardo A. Saucedo visits BUAP after the MRS congress in Cancun, Mexico and gives us a motivational talk about kesterites PV technology. He is the leader of the Solar Energy Materials and Systems Group at IREC and leads the European STARCELL project too. Kesterites are a promising PV material, it's metal elements, Copper, Zinc, and Tin are abundant on earth crust. This material owns a tetragonal lattice similar to…
