Processing and Laser Scribing Flexible Perovskite Solar Modules for Lunar Application

Energy icon, disabled. An orange lightning bolt.

This research effort focuses on the creation of a low-cost, lightweight, flexible perovskite solar modules that can withstand harsh thermal cycling that mimic lunar environments. Further, testing focuses on the comparison between flexible and rigid perovskite solar modules and the scalability of these cells to provide application within a large scale module consisting of multiple cells monolithically integrated using laser scribing. Results focus on the feasibility of flexible, lightweight solar module usage for lunar application in the near future.
