Perovskite Solar Cells

In article number 1502206, Aleksandra B. Djurišić and co-workers discuss whether excess PbI2 is beneficial for perovskite solar cell performance. The presence of unreacted PbI2 is commonly believed to be beneficial to the efficiency of perovskite solar cells. However, it results in an intrinsic instability of the illuminated film even in inert atmosphere, leading to accelerated film degradation under illumination.

Issue 8


In article number 1502329, Il-Kwon Oh and co-workers demonstrate an eco-friendly silk nanofiber-networked bio-triboelectric generator (Silk Bio-TEG) based on an electrospun nanofiber-networked film. Using an eco-friendly and sustainable bio-material and simple fabrication processes, this Silk Bio-TEG has great potential for self-powered systems even under environments of harsh vibration, and in living organisms with no harmful effects.
