Bright Future for Perovskite Solar Cells

Scientists at Oxford University have developed a solvent system with reduced toxicity that can be used in the manufacture of perovskite solar cells, clearing one of the barriers to the commercialization of a technology that promises to revolutionist the solar industry. Perovskites -- a family of materials with the crystal structure of calcium titanate -- have been described as a "wonder material" and shown to be almost as efficient as silicon in harnessing solar energy, as well as being significantly cheaper to produce.
