Self-Healing Polymer Added to PSCs Prevents Leakage of Pollutants
Opening paragraph from “Self-healing polymer brings perovskite solar tech closer to market”, ScienceDaily, sciencedaily.com, June 17, 2019
A protective layer of epoxy resin helps prevent the leakage of pollutants from perovskite solar cells (PSCs), report scientists from the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST). Adding a “self-healing” polymer to the top of a PSC can radically reduce how much lead it discharges into the environment. This gives a strong boost to prospects for commercializing the technology.
