Perovskite Solar Cells
May 2016 to March 2017
We were not able to surpass existing records for Perovskite cell efficiency.
Noting the nearly unprecedented growth in the efficiency of Perovskite solar cells, we embarked on a mission to develop and optimize experimental Titanium dioxide + Perovskite solar cells. In order to facilitate rapid experimentation, structural components were designed by team members remotely to be 3-D printed at the Construct at RIT. Because the methodology of the experiments evolved so rapidly, each component became obsolete quickly, and rapid prototyping was essential to keep up with the project's progress.
