Perovskite photovoltaics: a high-efficiency newcomer to the solar cell family

Author affiliations

Abstract

Organometal trihalide perovskite-based light absorbers have attracted great attention due to their excellent photovoltaic properties. The swift developments in the device fabrication techniques have led to the power conversion efficiencies exceeding 17%. In this minireview, we will present the typical characteristics of the materials and device structures, followed by analysing updated understandings on the operational principles of the devices. We will also point out the outstanding issues regarding the materials and devices. Finally, as a high-efficiency newcomer to the solar cell family, the potential impact on the relevant photovoltaics will be discussed.
