IIT Roorkee Researchers Develop Efficient And Low-Cost Solar Cells


Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee (IIT Roorkee) announced that its researchers had developed efficient, low-cost perovskite, and high-quality perovskite cells.


Perovskite Solar cells are thin film devices made with layers of materials. They can be printed, coated with liquid inks, or vacuum-deposited.


According to the institute, the power conversion efficiency of the perovskite cells was 17.05%.


“Perovskite solar cells have shown competitive power conversion efficiency with the potential for higher performance but their stability is limited in comparison to other leading options. Our main goal is to optimize the efficiency and reduce the cost of manufacturing Perovskite Solar Cells as much possible,” Professor Soumitra Satapathi from the Department of Physics, IIT Roorkee stated in a statement.


Modified perovskite solar cells have the best phase distribution, larger grains, and better crystallinity.

Perovskite solar cell has emerged as a low-cost technology for photovoltaics in the past decade. Professor K.K. Pant said that the IIT Roorkee developed PSCs is an important step in developing stable and efficient solar cells.
