Towards healthier photovoltaics.

Science is always teaching us how to do new things. But it is also important how it teach us how to do old stuff in a much better way. And with better we mean, in a faster, cleaner, healthier, more sustainable way. And that is kind of what Vincenzo Pecunia et al. do in their last paper.

They’ve developed a technique to study the impact of defects in lead-free-perovskites inspired materials. These materials are gathering a lot of interest since they can be key to the development of green, high-performance photovoltaics. And the efficiency of these materials is closely related to their defect tolerance.

This new technique is not only highly sensitive but it is also facile and widely applicable. We did this picture together with Vincenzo Pecunia and it has been featured in the cover of Advanced Energy Materials.
