2018 is soon over - and it was another exciting year for the perovskite industry. We've seen many new research advances, but more importantly , we are starting to see first signs of commercialization. 2018 was also an exciting year for Perovskite-Info, as we have experienced significant growth and published our Perovskite Handbook - which demonstrates positive sales and feedback.

Here are the top 10 stories posted on Perovskite-Info in 2018, ranked by popularity (i.e. how many people read the story):

  1. Microquanta reaches 17.9% efficiency for perovskite solar mini-module (Jul 3)
