Presents a thoroughoverviewofperovskiteresearch, written by leaders in the fieldof photovoltaics
The use ofperovskite-structuredmaterialsto producehigh-efficiencysolar cellsisasubjectof growing interest for academic researchers and industry professionals alike. Due to theirexcellent light absorption, longevity, andcharge-carrierproperties,perovskitesolar cellsshow great promise as alow-cost, industry-scalablealternative to conventionalphotovoltaiccells.
Perovskite Solar Cells: Materials, Processes, and Devicesprovides an up-to-dateoverview of thecurrent state ofperovskite solar cell research.Addressingthekey areas in the rapidly growing field, this comprehensive volume covers novel materials, advanced theory, modelling and simulation, device physics, new processes, andthe critical issue of solar cell stability. Contributions byan international panel ofresearchershighlightboththeopportunities andchallenges related to perovskitesolar cellswhileofferingdetailed insightson topics such as thephotonrecyclingprocesses, interfacialproperties, andcharge transfer principles ofperovskite-based devices.
Examinesnew compositions,hole and electron transportmaterials,lead-freematerials, and2D and 3DmaterialsCoversinterface modellingtechniques,methods for modellingintwoandthreedimensions, anddevelopments beyond Shockley-QueisserTheoryDiscussesnew fabrication processes such as slot-die coating, rollprocessing, andvacuum sublimationDescribesthedevice physics of perovskite solar cells, including recombinationkineticsand opticalabsorptionExploresinnovative approaches to increasethelight conversion efficiencyof photovoltaic cells
Perovskite Solar Cells: Materials, Processes, and Devicesis essential reading for all those in the photovoltaic community, includingmaterials scientists, surface physicists, surface chemists, solid state physicists, solid state chemists, and electrical engineers.
