  author={Harishankar Suman and Avijit Kumar},
Perovskite solar cells have shown power conversion efficiencies (PCE) comparable to cystalline silicon solar cell despite involving low-temperature, solution based synthesis processes outside clean room environment. As the theoretical PCE of a perovskite solar cell with band gap 1.55 eV is capped to 33 % due to Shockley–Queisser limit, tandem configurations are being investigated to go beyond this limit. Here, we propose a two-terminal (2T) tandem solar cell structure consisting of perovskite…
