May 13 (SeeNews) - Testing in Saudi Arabia has shown no material loss of power conversion efficiency in perovskite solar cells under a constant elevated temperature, light soaking and in real-world conditions.
Dyesol Ltd (ASX:DYE) on Monday said a research team led by Michael Graetzel, chairman of the Australian firm’s Technology Advisory Board, has achieved 1,000 hours of stability under light soaking and more than 2,000 hours under temperatures of 80-85 degrees Celsius for perovskite cells. Outdoor testing in the Saudi Arabian desert have also demonstrated the outdoor durability of triple-Layer mesoporous perovskite photovoltaics (PV) in real-world conditions.
The research team used a cell architecture which matches one of the products being developed by Dyesol for commercialisation evaluation, the company said in the press release. "No competitive technology in the field of perovskites has yet to demonstrate such promising stability results," the company added.
