A team of researchers at University of Sheffield have found cheaper and efficient means of trapping solar energy with help of perovskite and spray painting fabrication process. The team of researchers led by Professor David Lidzey used perovskite, a crystalline organometal made mostly of calcium titanate to make these proof-of-concept solar cells. They chose the material for two reasons, first of all perovskite is much cheaper to obtain and use as compared to silicon which is used to make...
