In the past few years, perovskite solar cells (PSCs) received a lot of awareness in research due to their low manufacturing cost, high efficiency, and high specific power. For industry, PSCs are very interesting because of their easy solution-based fabrication process and comparable efficiencies with the established c-Si-based solar cells. Thus, the fabrication can be upscaled with low waste deposition technologies like printing. Being fast and using minimal material, slot-die coating is a very promising technique.
During our work we optimize printed PSCs on flexible substrates and investigate their suitability for the application in space environment. The objective is the development of PSCs by applying different compositions and measuring techniques like spectroscopy and real-space imaging in combination with X-ray scattering methods.
