NREL and Energy Materials Corp. (EMC) have joined forces on a project to determine the thermal budget for the coating of perovskite films using different substrates and perovskite inks.

Supported by the U.S. Department of Energy's Solar Energy Technologies Office and Advanced Manufacturing Office, both thermal and rapid thermal processing will be studied to determine optimal device processing conditions for NREL's scalable ink and scalable processing.

Combining EMC's industry insight and previously curated perovskite research and NREL's state-of-the-art facilities and technology capabilities has furthered perovskite R&D in recent years, helping to ensure that the technology will be ready for commercial success.
