2022 TMS Spring Meeting

World record in solar cell efficiency achieved

World record in solar cell efficiency achieved

Through the joint effort from scientists at the Universities of Wuppertal, Cologne, Potsdam, Tübingen, the Helmholtz Center Berlin and the MPIE, the first organic-perovskite solar cell with an efficiency of 24% was presented. Simulations show a theoretical limit of 30%, which can be achieved with further innovations.
Leonie Gomell and Siyuan Zhang are co-authors of the publication. The recent findings are published under:
Brinkmann, K.O., Becker, T., Zimmermann, F. et al, Perovskite–organic tandem solar cells with indium oxide interconnect, Nature 604, 280–286 (2022)
