MIT researchers improve perovskite-based solar panel efficiency

MIT researchers improve perovskite-based solar panel efficiency

Today, solar panels are typically made of silicon, but in the future, they could be manufactured from a different material that offers more efficiency and lower manufacturing cost. The material that could replace silicon for these next-generation solar panels is called perovskites. MIT researchers say that perovskites offer the potential for low-cost, low-temperature manufacturing of extremely thin and lightweight, flexible cells.
