About this Research Topic
The power conversion efficiency of the perovskite solar cell exhibited a meteoric rise over the past few years, which is approaching the theoretical efficiency limit of single-junction solar cells. This success is mainly ascribed to the unique properties of halide perovskites such as high carrier mobility, extraordinarily long carrier diffusion lengths, and tunable optical bandgaps. Inspired by this breakthrough in the solar cell area, scientists have also studied their performances in other devices such as photodetectors, light-emitting diodes, lasers, X-ray detectors, and resistive switching memories. Simultaneously, a number of preparation methods were developed to fabricate high-quality perovskite films to enhance the device performance, while various perovskite-like materials were proposed to meet the commercialization requirements, such as 2-dimensional perovskites, double perovskites, and perovskite derivatives. These investigations provide opportunities to achieve new innovations in related fields and may pave the way for the next-generation perovskite solar cell.
