Special Issue on Printable Solar Cells: From Materials to Devices

Published 30 April, 2021

Printable solar cells, including organic photovoltaics and perovskite solar cells, are fabricated using soluble semiconducting materials via printing technologies. They share distinctive advantages; for example, they are light weight, flexible, have tunable colour and are potentially low cost. In recent years, this field has made great breakthroughs, achieving power conversion efficiency comparable to single crystalline silicon solar cells. Novel photovoltaic technology is now on the verge of commercialisation. With this background in mind, this themed special issue will present the most recent advances in printable solar cells, and provide a broad overview of the theoretical and experimental advancements, from materials to devices. The editors welcome original research articles, reviews and communications, as well as progress reports.
