Unleashing perovskites’ potential for solar cells

Conventional solar cells made of silicon must be processed at temperatures above 1,400 degrees Celsius, using expensive equipment that limits their potential for production scaleup. In contrast, perovskites can be processed in a liquid solution at temperatures as low as 100 degrees, using

Solar cells made of perovskite have great promise, in part because they can easily be made on flexible substrates, like this experimental cell
