Description

Pioneering research led by scientists at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has led to the development of the most efficient all-inorganic inverted perovskite solar cells (PVSCs) to date. This novel approach will contribute to addressing the global energy issue in a cost-effective manner.

The all-inorganic inverted PVSCs developed in the year-long research project have achieved a recorded efficiency of 16.1% and a certified efficiency of 15.6%. This level of efficiency has great potential to enhance the stability and practical value of PVSCs.

The findings were published in Nature Communications under the title “Highly efficient all-inorganic perovskite solar cells with suppressed non-radiative recombination by a Lewis base”.

TitleNovel solar cells promise new opportunities
DescriptionThe development of the most efficient all-inorganic inverted perovskite solar cells (PVSCs) led by scientists at City University of Hong Kong are a type of solar cells produced by metal halide perovskite materials, which are an attractive option for the renewable energy technologies due to their high efficiency and low manufacturing cost.

“Our research has shown that the all-inorganic inverted PVSCs can achieve a 16.1% efficiency, but we can see there’s potential to go higher,” said Professor Alex Jen Kwan-yue, Provost of CityU and Chair Professor of Chemistry and Materials Science.
