Scalable method for manufacture of thin film photovoltaic devices

Photovoltaic devices based on perovskites hold the potential of thin, light structures and very high efficiencies. However, the instability of perovskites in air leads to very short device lifetimes (on the order of hours), and thus silicone-based…
