NREL, University of Texas Scientists Determine Critical Factor for Improving Performance and Durability of Perovskite Solar Cells

The researchers took a close look at two organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite thin films made of methylammonium lead iodide. Perovskite solar cells possess a polycrystalline structure with individual crystals grains. These grains are adjacent to other crystals and the area where the crystals touch is known as

Illustration shows the microwave impedance microscopy technique illuminating the solar cell from below.
