Mystery of new, high-performance solar cell materials revealed in stunning clarity

22 November 2021

Researchers from our Optoelectronic Materials and Device Spectroscopy group used a suite of correlative, multimodal microscopy methods to visualise, for the first time, why perovskite materials are seemingly so tolerant of defects in their structure. Their findings were published today in Nature Nanotechnology . The most...
