Understanding the rate-dependent JV hysteresis, slow time component, and aging in CH3NH3PbI3 perovskite solar cells: the role of a compensated electric field

Ionic displacement modifying the electric field in the device is found as most likely reason for the hysteresis which is examined by separating fast and slow processes and comparing devices with and without blocking layer.

New insights into the electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide on metallic copper surfaces

Having developed a new experimental methodology with enhanced sensitivity, we identify and quantify products from the electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide on copper and discuss mechanistic implications.

About this collection

The EES Readers’ Choice Lectureship is awarded annually to one outstanding young scientist selected by the Editorial Board, from a shortlist of authors of the most-read articles from each issue of EES in the previous year. This collection features the Lectureship-winning articles by award winners since 2012.

The 2016 Lectureship was awarded to Dr Wolfgang Tress. He is currently working as a scientist at LPI, EPFL in Switzerland, with general interests in developing and studying novel photovoltaic concepts and technologies. His research focuses on the device physics of perovskite solar cells; most recently, investigating recombination and hysteresis phenomena in this emerging material system. Previously, he was analysing and modelling performance limiting processes in organic solar cells.
