Russia develops all-weather solar panels
Journal of science and technology in Moscow on April 26 (xinhua Dong Yingbi) recently, the Russian national technology research university "Moscow state institute" steel alloy, researchers have made of semiconductor silicon photoelectric converter coating technology to adapt to the industry standard, this will make the solar panels production of cheap and easy to manufacture, and can make its work under any weather.
The silicon crystals used to make solar panels are complex, expensive and have serious limitations in their use. Therefore, perovskite materials are being actively studied in the world to replace silicon. At present, the photoelectric conversion efficiency of perovskite solar cells has reached the level of commercial silicon cells.
Since 2015, researchers at the Moscow State Institute of Steel and Alloy have been developing perovskite solar cells and photodetectors. The result of the team's research is a technique that ensures the high stability and luminescence properties of perovskite layers and ADAPTS to modern industrial application standards.
Moscow state institute of iron and steel alloy in the future, a researcher at the laboratory for solar artur ish, jaguar, said that by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) can show the formation of titanium calcium deposits, and can explain the inorganic high stability and luminescence properties of perovskite, understand the type of perovskite materials in all process stage of the best optical properties, The use of standard methods in combination with mechanochemical synthesis has made it possible to scale up to the industrial level. He stressed that the CVD method is now the industry standard for producing leds and solar cells and that perovskite technology can be introduced on existing production lines without the need to change equipment sets.
Unlike silicon, which can generate power in diffuse and low-light conditions, Perovskite solar panels can work in all weather conditions, even indoors, expanding their range of applications, such as powering stationary devices and wearables such as watches and smartphones, Ishdeyev explained. Perovskite solar cells and leds are now available for mass production and will be widely used in industrial and consumer electronics, with their main advantages being low production cost and high output characteristics, he added.
The Moscow State Institute of Steel and Alloy organized the complete assembly cycle of perovskite solar cells. From glass to finished equipment, solar cells can be assembled in five hours under laboratory conditions. The technology has been patented and is ready for mass production and competition with silicon solar cells.
