Stability of Perovskite Solar Cells against Light and Heat
Organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite (CH3NH3PbI3) solar cells have been studied intensively for new energy resource of our future society, due to the high conversion efficiency. However, the CH3NH3PbI3 perovskite is quite unstable material. In this presentation, the efforts to improve and understand the stability issue of perovskite solar cells will be summarized. Specially, results of thermal stabile perovskite solar cells at 100 ºC will be presented.

Biography

Seigo Ito received his Ph.D. from the University of Tokyo (Japan) at 2000, with a thesis that was the first to discuss Grätzel-type dye-sensitized solar cells in Japan. He worked in the Laboratory of Professor Shozo Yanagida (Osaka University, Japan) for two years, and in the Laboratory of Professor Michael Grätzel, at the Swiss federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne as a postdoctoral scientist for over three years, where his efforts focused on the progress of high-efficiency dye-sensitized solar cells. He is currently professor at University of Hyogo from 2007, making new printable cost-effective solar cells, including non-vacuum-processed silicon solar cells and perovskite solar cells. He has published around 100 papers with total citation over 11,600.
