Australian scientists ‘drastically improve’ new solar cell technology

The Sydney Morning Herald discusses how Australian scientists ‘drastically improve’ new solar cell technology.

Australian researchers have found ways to improve the durability of new solar technology that could rival or complement traditional silicon cells, bringing its mass production a step closer to reality.

Conventional solar cells used on roofs and elsewhere took four decades to pass efficiency rates of 25 per cent, a milestone new so-called perovskite cells have reached in about a quarter of the time while using low-cost materials. The stability of the new technology is yet to be assured.
