Sunc-Voc Measurements of Semi-Transparent Perovskite Solar Cells

Energy icon, disabled. An orange lightning bolt.

Understanding solar cell technology allows researchers to develop more efficient devices to collect the sun’s energy. This project focuses on quantifying the parasitic series resistance in perovskite solar cells as a function of the thickness of certain layers in the cell. Further knowledge of the properties of perovskite solar cells could lead to a more cost-effective and energy-efficient solution for the commercial solar energy market.
