MIT Researchers Find Path for Flexible Perovskite Solar Cells

By Ryan Austin Researchers now understand how to increase efficiency of flexible solar cells

A team of researchers from MIT, with assistance from UC San
Diego, have taken us one step closer to commercializing perovskite solar cells,
a technology that is cheaper, more flexible, and easier to manufacture than crystalline
solar cells used in conventional solar panels.

As reported by MIT News, the researchers found that by adding different metals to the mix, they can increase the efficiency of the solar cell. Adding just the right amounts, they found a ‘sweet spot’ where performance is enhanced, but found that adding too much can lead to degradation.
