silicon-perovskite solar power solar cells

Silicon-perovskite solar cells are on the verge of revolutionizing power generation efficiency

Forward-looking: Traditional solar power cells are based on a silicon semiconductor compound, which is known to have a theoretical maximum efficiency of 29 percent in converting sunlight into electric energy. However, by incorporating a second perovskite layer onto the base silicon layer, solar cells have the potential to surpass this efficiency threshold in the near future.
