Perovskite Solar Cells(PSC) – UPSC Prelims

Perovskite Solar Cells(PSC):
  • Perovskite Solar Cells(PSC) is a type of solar cell that includes a perovskite-structured compound, most commonly a hybrid organic-inorganic lead or tin halide-based material, as the light-harvesting active layer.
  • PSCs have become commercially attractive because of the potential of achieving even higher efficiencies and very low production costs. However, the challenge lies in its short- and long-term stability.
  • It is a new process for increasing the efficiency and stability of Titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanorods.
