Summary

The increasing environmental concerns and decreasing petroleum resources have made it necessary and urgent to develop various kinds of renewable sources. Solar energy is one of the most promising alternatives and as a result, solar cells that could convert solar energy to electric energy have been widely developed. However, due to the high cost of Si-based solar cells, the applications of solar cells have been greatly inhibited. Very recently, perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have shown great promise to solve the above problem because high power conversion efficiency (PCE) could be easily achieved by simple and low-cost solution-based processes. In the last decade, the PCE of PSCs has been rapidly boosted from original 3.8% to over 25%. Besides, various device structures and perovskite materials have been exploited for PSCs, which would help expand the application fields of PSCs. This Special Issue " Perovskite Solar Cells " covers the development of PSCs with different device structures. The scope of interests includes but is not limited to the following topics:


(1) Organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite solar cells
(2) Inorganic perovskite solar cells
(3) 2D perovskite solar cells
(4) Lead-free perovskite solar cells
(5) Perovskite solar cells based on carbon electrodes
(6) Tandem perovskite solar cells
(7) Perovskite solar cells with other structures
