Symposium 26: Advances in Materials and Technology for Perovskite and Next-Generation Solar Cells



The significant increase in demand of world energy consumption as well as clean and efficient energy resources has prompted the imperative searches of new materials and technologies. Recently, advanced materials and technologies for perovskite and next-generation solar cells have been exploited to develop economically viable, high-performance solar cells with long-term stability, which is crucial for commercial production. This symposium will focus on the important issues and phenomena that are at the frontier of understanding and materials development in perovskite solar cells and next-generation solar cells, including cells film/single-crystal growth, chemistry of materials, surfaces/interfaces, hysteresis, photophysics, air stability, and fundamental and devices modeling. This symposium will bring together interdisciplinary experts on state-of-art technologies of perovskite and next-generation solar cells by focusing on fundamentals and applications from materials to devices.
