Perovskite materials can recycle light particles – a finding which could lead to a new generation of affordable, high-performance solar cells.
Scientists have discovered that a highly promising group of materials known as hybrid lead halide perovskites can recycle light – a finding that they believe could lead to large gains in the efficiency of solar cells.
The research was undertaken in the group of Professor Sir Richard Friend, Cavendish Professor of Physics, in partnership with the team of Henry Snaith at the University of Oxford and Bruno Ehrler at the FOM Institute, AMOLF, Amsterdam and was reported in Science Magazine, 24 March 2016.
