Prof. Henry J. Snaith discusses perovskite PVs, their current status and future prospects

Scientific Video Protocols (SciVPro) is a no-fee, open access peer-reviewed video platform that publishes scientifically sound research from all areas of natural science and technology. The open availability of the video protocol on Youtube facilitates the dissemination of experimental details among the scientific community and the public at large, while promoting authors’ research activities and easing reproducibility of results.

SciVPro released a fascinating interview with the renowned Prof. Henry J. Snaith, Professor of Physics in the Clarendon Laboratory at the University of Oxford and Fellow of the Royal Society. He has pioneered the field of perovskite solar cells and published more than 300 papers. He is the founder and Chief Scientist Officer of Oxford Photovoltaics, which holds the largest perovskite patent portfolio worldwide and focuses on developing and commercializing perovskite PV technology.

Quantum Solutions demonstrated its perovskite QDs at Displayweek 2018

Saudi Arabia-based Quantum Solutions demonstrated its perovskite quantum dots (with a focus on its green-colored ones) at SID Displayweek 2018, in addition to its Lead-Sulfide (PbS) QDs.

Quantum Solutions says it uses a flow reactor to create uniform and high-quality QDs at high yields and minimal waste. The company also develops encapsulation technology to protect the perovskite QDs. Their current materials have a lifetime of around 8,000 hours.

New Perovskite introduction video

Today we are happy to publish this short perovskite explanation video, which we believe gives a nice introduction to perovskite materials - their properties, applications and current market status:

University of Tokyo team's investigation of perovskite structures may lead to improvement of solar cell performance

University of Tokyo researchers have studies the structure of organometal halide perovskites, a ubiquitous class of solar cells and came up with interesting results.

Dr. Tae Woong Kim: “Until now, it has been believed each crystal phase of the perovskite solely exists at its given temperature range. However, in this research, we revealed their crystal phases coexist at room temperature and the coexistence induces self-organized superlattice structure. These evidences overturn the conventional theory. Especially, the existence of the spontaneous superlattice will maximize their potential for wide and diverse applications.”
