Perovskites photo-voltaics are new and fast-improving which, according to Imperial College last year , rose in efficiency from less than four per cent in 2009 to over 20 per cent, on par with traditional solar cells. Now a team of researchers from Universities of Cambridge and Oxford, and the FOM Institute in Amsterdam, has discovered that perovskite cells can re-cycle photons created when electron-hole pairs collide rather than loose the energy as longer wavelength photons or lattice phonons. “It’s a massive demonstration of the quality of this material and opens the door to maximising the efficiency of solar cells," said Cambridge researcher Felix Deschler. "The fabrication methods that would be required to exploit this phenomenon are not complicated, and that should boost the efficiency of this technology significantly beyond what we have been able to achieve until now....
