The efficiency of perovskites in photovoltaics is not due to chance

In collaboration with US teams (from Los Alamos, Rice, Northwestern, Brookhaven), researchers at the ISCR (Institut des Sciences Chimiques de Rennes) and the Institut Fonctions Optiques pour les Technologies de l’Information have identified the reason for the remarkable performance of semi-conductor systems based on lamellar perovskites. These results were published in Science.
