Abstract

Solar panels must endure extreme conditions during their service lifetime. There are few other products, let alone pristine semiconductor electronics, that are manufactured today and expected to withstand decades of abuse from full exposure to outdoor elements, including harsh ultraviolet sunlight, rain and hail, and daily and seasonal thermal cycles. Over the past decade, a new class of semiconductors, known as metal halide perovskites, has emerged, which constitutes the light-absorbing material in solar panels and has made incredible advancements, potentially taking photovoltaics in new directions.
