About the research
Imagine if cars, windows, or even walls would be able to generate power? New, flexible, and ultra-thin perovskite solar cells could make this a reality, but there's a catch. While perovskite solar cells have reached the same efficiency as the solar cells we know, they have a limited lifetime as they degrade under light and heat. Imec-researcher Wenya Song (KU Leuven) is looking to tackle this degradation to improve the lifespan of perovskite solar cells.
