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.
The HZB research portfolio includes solar cells, solar fuels, thermoelectrics, and materials for new, energy-efficient information technologies (spintronics) or electrochemical energy storage. Research on these energy materials is closely connected with the operation and advanced development of the BESSY II photon source. HZB's research approach always concentrates on thin-film technologies.
The HZB researches perovskites in contexts like solar cells, silicon and perovskites hybrids and more.
