Korver Corp.

Korver Corp. logo imageKorver Corp. was an American company with offices in California and China. Its mission was to develop high-efficiency perovskite/silicon tandem solar cells with sufficiently large area and long lifetime to be commercially manufactured.

These solar cells were planned to be significantly more efficient than typical silicon-based solar cells, with efficiency up to around 30-40% (compared to silicon-based which is 21-22%). Korver has reportedly modified the silicon material for its use as bottom solar cell, which optimized the design of the overall system, and the durability of the tandem cell. The perovskite and silicon are connected or “layered” using charge carrier transport layers.

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab)

Berkeley Lab is a multidisciplinary national laboratory located in Berkeley, California on a hillside directly above the campus of the University of California at Berkeley.

LBNL conducts varied and extensive perovskite-based research in fields like solar cells, optoelectronics and more.

Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin (HZB)

The Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) is a research center that studies complex systems of materials that contribute to dealing with challenges like energy transition.

Perovskite-Info

Perovskite-Info is a comprehensive portal for all things perovskite. It was launched in September 2015 as a perovskite news aggregator with an aim to become a hub for perovskite professionals and enthusiasts.
