Hybrid Organic-Inorganic Perovskite Solar Cells

Hybrid organic-inorganic perovskite solar cells have brought a wave of attention to the field of photovoltaics as their potential to become the next-generation of solar cell devices has been realized. Their promise of both higher energy conversion efficiencies and significantly lower processing costs makes perovskite an excellent candidate to revolutionize the solar panel industry. With a history that doesn’t even stretch 10 years, further extensive research is required before perovskites can be fully commercialized. Especially, problems concerning the toxicity of lead, stability in presence of water and anomalous hysteresis need to be addressed.
