This project aims to develop flexible perovskite solar cells. Flexibility and light weight give solar cells a wide range of applications. They also offer the potential for low-cost manufacturing with the roll-to-roll printing and low-temperature processing of hybrid organic/inorganic perovskite materials. Successful methods have been developed and have led to the fabrication of reproducible and efficient flexible perovskite solar cells on polymer substrates. However, the instability of these devices remains a major hurdle that needs to be overcome, and understanding the origins of device degradation is paramount to resolving this issue.
