Effects of Humidity and Moisture Degradation on High Efficiency Perovskite Solar Cells

30 April 2015 | 09:00 By Jan Gorgol The photovoltaic effect is the creation of a voltage in a material upon exposure to sunlight; it is how a solar cell converts sunlight into electricity. It was first observed by Becquerel in 1839. However it was not until the advent of Silicon technology’s in the 1950’s [...]
