The Research team of New York University, Tandon School of Engineering, develops a phenomenal means creating solar cells. These organic solar cells are resistant to air, light, and water. During the research, they removed the material from the device instead of adding any material to it. This is attained by sticking an adhesive tape to the device to strip off the electron receiving molecules. Degeneration of a device happens due
Lead-based perovskite is finding way as a low-cost and efficient material for solar cells, as per a recent study. Howbeit, the inherent instability and toxic nature of lead have raised major concerns pertaining to the sustainability of lead-based perovskites. This is thus hindering the adoption of these materials for large-scale commercial use. On the other hand, in another move, lead-free perovskites received recommendation because of toxic nature of lead-based perovskites.
