  • The research findings, an important step towards commercial viability of perovskite solar cells, are published today in the journal Science.
  • When put to strict international testing standards, the cells the team was working on outperformed expectations.
  • Specifically, the perovskite solar cells survived more than 1800 hours of the IEC “Damp Heat” test and 75 cycles of “Humidity Freeze” test, exceeding the requirement of IEC61215:2016 standard for the first time.
