Simple chemicals called glycol ethers help make better perovskite thin films for solar cells.
Thin films for use in solar cells are more effective when simple chemicals called glycol ethers are added to the film-forming mix, a KAUST team has found.
“This is an unexpected discovery,” says Esma Ugur, a Ph.D. student in the KAUST Solar Center team that observed the effect. “It yields more uniform thin films with improved structure and efficiency.”
