Hybrid Halide Perovskites solar cells (HHPs) have gained considerable attention not only because of their low processing cost but also because they have shown high energy conversion efficiencies, with the highest certified power conversion reported to be 25.2 %. On other hand, nanostructured materials have been considered for the third-generation photovoltaics aiming for obtaining cells that require less area per module which will allow reducing overall costs.
In this direction, we have incorporated quantum dots and nanosprings, as the transport channel, into the perovskite framework to create a p-n heterostructure type solar cell. In this talk, I will give an overview of perovskites and solar cells, then explain the synthesis method we have used to build our proposed solar cell structure, and present some preliminary results.
