Science Figured Out: How to scale up perovskite solar cells?


Science Figured Out lures young scientists out of their familiar lab or office and places them in front of a camera with a clear assignment: tell the general public about your research in a clear 3-minute pitch! Several researchers connected to EnergyVille also took part.

Sujith Reddy's research on perovskite solar cells

Sujith Reddy (UHasselt – Imec) is working on perovskites, a promising new solar cell technology that captures more sunlight and costs less than conventional solar cells. Sounds great, right! But there’s a catch: these perovskite solar cells ironically tend to break down when exposed to … light. Sujith wants to uncover the mechanisms behind this degradation in order to improve perovskites and to use them on a larger scale.
