About this Research Topic
Global energy issues have led to intense research activity in the area of photovoltaics (PV). Solid-state hybrid solar cells based on organometal trihalide perovskite absorbers have drawn a great deal of attention from the PV research community, due to the extremely rapid increases in energy conversion efficiencies. Organic-inorganic hybrid perovskites possess unique structures and superior optical and electrical properties. They have suitable band structures, unique ambipolar carrier transport, long carrier lifetime, and excellent defect tolerance for solar cells. This Research Topic is dedicated to the development of technologies and materials of solid-state hybrid solar cells.
This Research Topic accepts both Review and Original Research articles with a focus on the recent advances in solid-state hybrid solar cells. Potential topics include, but are not limited to the following:
• nanotechnologies and nanomaterials for solid-state hybrid solar cells
• solar cell structure optimization
• new method of organic-inorganic hybrid perovskites
• environment assessment of perovskite solar cells
• degradation issues
• theoretical calculation/simulation
• scale-up production methods
Keywords: nanotechnology, nanomaterials, solar cells, metal halide perovskite, solar energy conversion
