Perovskite crystal discovery enables new generation of solar panels

Perovskite crystal discovery enables new generation of solar panels

A study explains how a promising type of perovskites - man-made crystals that can convert sunlight into electricity - can be stabilized. As a result, the crystals turn black, enabling them to absorb sunlight. This is necessary to be able to use them in new solar panels that are easy to make and highly efficient.
