Special issue: Emerging Photovoltaic Materials for High-Performance/stable Photovoltaic Applications
Various photovoltaics (PV) devices employing inorganic, organic, and hybrid organic-inorganic materials have shown notable progress in terms of improving power conversion efficiency and stability over the past decade. Discovery of superior PV materials, maximum utilization of sunlight through tandem device structure, defect engineering by nanotechnology, and introduction of novel functional nanostructure led to the improvement in PV device performance exceeding more than 22%. Nevertheless, the aforementioned PV devices are still suffering from critical issues such as material scarcity, instability, toxicity, power generation cost and etc. To address such challenges of PV materials and devices, this special issue aims to discuss the state-of-the-art advances in various PV applications including inorganic (e.g., Si, CIGSSe, CZTSSe), dye-sensitized, organic, and organic-inorganic hybrid (i.e., perovskite) solar cells. Thus, we would like to invite authors to submit their original and high-quality research articles or review papers on novel PV material design/synthesis, device structure, and material/device processing, advanced characterization technologies and modeling toward high-performance/stable photovoltaic devices.
