Better together: Perovskites paired with silicon could create higher-efficiency solar cells

By Stephanie Liverani / January 19, 2016

Researchers at the University of Oxford in England say perovskites are the class of materials that will change the solar cell game not by themselves, but when teamed up with our reliable standby material, silicon.
