Researchers develop new encapsulation strategy based on shellac

Researchers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine and the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) have presented a simple and economical encapsulation strategy with shellac to protect perovskite solar cells (PSCs) under various accelerated degradation experiments. 

The shellac-encapsulated (SE) PSC modules reportedly passed outdoor stability, UV preconditioning, and hail tests according to the International Electrotechnical Commission 61215 standard (IEC61215). 


More importantly, the SE PSC modules demonstrated excellent lead sequestration ability after mechanical shock damage, which is vital in mitigating the perceived toxicity concerns of PSCs during widespread applications.
