About this Research Topic
The last few years witnessed an extraordinary improvement of organic-inorganic halide perovskite materials owing to their interesting optoelectronic properties. The increasing use of metal halide perovskites as light harvesters has also stunned the photovoltaic community. Perovskite is a new photovoltaic material, very efficient while maintaining high power conversion performance. Lead halide perovskites are the most hopeful solution for the next generation. However, the major concern with lead is its toxicity, the World Health Organization (WHO) has listed lead as among 10 toxic chemicals. From that perspective, lead-free, or less lead-containing materials are the best substitution for exchanging lead-having conglomerate. These perovskites materials can use to fabricate Tandem solar cells. How different layers in PSCs are fabricated and how their roles are as important as the perovskite layer itself will elaborate. The power conversion efficiency of the photovoltaic solar cell (PSC) has risen to over 21%. But still, more work needs to be focused on it.
The key goals of the present Research Topic are:
• The key goal of the present proposal is to give critical information about the nature and synthesis route of specific organic-inorganic halide perovskite materials, their properties, and their implementation for energy transformation.
• Present research proposal covers the basics and provides up-to-date research in the field of perovskite photovoltaics—a fast trending branch of the thin-film photovoltaic generation.
• As well as to explore possible solutions to some of the most challenging social problems, i.e., energy, water, etc.
• Study of electron-transporting materials, hole-transporting materials, and lead-free alternatives.
• Study of tandem solar cells and dual junction.
Therefore, the main objective of this Research Topic is to highlight the various important synthesis methods of organic-inorganic metal halide perovskite nanocrystal and their Applications in energy conversion, environment, sensing, etc.
