Don’t Let the Lead Out: New Material Chemistry Approaches for Sustainable Lead Halide Perovskite Solar Cells
New material chemistry approaches that can be applied to reduce the lead leakage/wastage from damaged lead halide perovskite solar cells are discussed and the potential of lead-free perovSKite for optoelectronic applications is discussed.
Dealing with Lead in Hybrid Perovskite: A Challenge to Tackle for a Bright Future of This Technology?
Hybrid Perovskite (HP) semiconductors have been skyrocketing the field of new generation photovoltaics and expanding into advanced optoelectronics. Perovskite photovoltaics (PV) can give a tremendous
The effects of iniquitous lead exposure on health
Disadvantaged communities are vulnerable to the impacts of lead exposure risking further worsening of their living standards, an outcome likely to weaken global efforts towards the Sustainable
Biological impact of lead from halide perovskites reveals the risk of introducing a safe threshold
It is shown that the lead from perovskite leaking into the ground can enter plants, and consequently the food cycle, ten times more effectively than other lead contaminants already present as the result of the human activities.
Reduction of lead leakage from damaged lead halide perovskite solar modules using self-healing polymer-based encapsulation
In recent years, the major factors that determine commercialization of perovskite photovoltaic technology have been shifting from solar cell performance to stability, reproducibility, device
