  • Growing perovskite on textured silicon Wide–band gap perovskites could boost the efficiency of silicon solar cells by forming tandem cells, but usually the perovskite must be grown on a smoothed side of the silicon cell because the material grown on the rough light-trapping side often does not fully coat the silicon surface and its rough texture is prone to phase separation. Hou et al. grew thick films of a perovskite with a band gap of ∼1.68 electron volts and used a passivant, 1-butanethiol… CONTINUE READING
