Major Advance for an Emerging Solar Cell Technology

Following a 2012 ‘breakthrough for perovskite cells’ by Oxford physicist Henry Snaith and colleagues, Science (11/9/13) reported that Henry and his team ‘have delivered another surprise…the cells are just as efficient if constructed using the same method as cheap thin-film silicon cells. What’s more, the simple layered cell converts more than 15% of sunlight to electricity – equal to the record for perovskite cells, set just two months ago for a nanostructured device’.
