Researchers from the University of Toledo have reported progress that may push the performance of tandem perovskite solar cells to new levels. Working in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Lab and the University of Colorado, Dr. Yanfa Yan, UToledo professor of physics, envisions that the new high efficiency tandem perovskite solar cell will be ready to debut in full-sized solar panels in the consumer market in the near future.
"We are producing higher-efficiency, lower-cost solar cells that show great promise to help solve the world energy crisis," Yan said. "The meaningful work will help protect our planet for our children and future generations. We have a problem consuming most of the fossil energies right now, and our collaborative team is focused on refining our innovative way to clean up the mess."
