A future of wireless self‐powered devices is upon us. The number of sensors and devices in our close environment is growing fast. And so does its energy demand.
In his last paper, Vincenzo Pecunia proposes the use of indoor photovoltaics: a clean sustainable way to fulfill this demand with lead‐free (and thus, non toxic) perovskite‐inspired materials. In particular Pecunia and co-workers, have studied two materials, BiOI and Cs3Sb2ClxI9‐x which happen to be really bad at harvesting sun light but present high efficiencies under indoor light conditions.
This research opens a door to the study of more efficient, non-toxic perovskite‐inspired materials and a sustainable future.
Under close supervision of Dr. Pecunia we made this picture that has been featured as the cover of Advanced Energy Materials.
