Silicon-perovskite solar cell cracks new efficiency record

Silicon has long been the go-to material for solar cell technology, and for good reason: It’s inexpensive, it’s stable and it’s efficient. Unfortunately in that last regard silicon is fast approaching its theoretical limit, but pairing it up with other materials could help break through that ceiling. Now, researchers at EPFL and CSEM have developed a new technique for combining silicon and perovskite solar cells, and reported an efficiency of 25.2 percent – a record for that combination…
