Perovskite solar cells: a review
Supreeth A,  Shreya Y S
Present photovoltaic systems can be categorized by various aspects such as grid connected, stand alone ,rack-mounted ,ground-mounted ,retrofitted systems etc. these various category uses specific photovoltaic material which is further classified as first, second and third generations. This paper presents feasibility investigation on one of the third generation solar cells called “perovskite solar cells” it comprising of ABX3 crystal structure, perovskite structure most commonly studied absorber is methylammonium lead trihalide (CH3NH3PbX3) comprising of optical bandwidth of 2.3ev and 1.6ev which leads into several advantages over traditional silicon solar cells in simplicity of processing ,costs etc. This hybrid organic-inorganic lead or tin based systems leads into cheap, simple manufacturing techniques with relative higher stability and higher energy conversions.
Keywords- perovskite structure, methylammonium lead trihalide (CH3NH3PbX3) , optical bandwidth, hybrid, energy conversions.
