An ultrafast method for manufacturing and assembling stable perovskite solar modules has been developed at Stanford University. The technique, according to study author Reinhold Dauskardt, resolves some of the most formidable barriers to module-scale manufacturing that have vexed researchers for years.
To address the problem of large-scale production, the researchers deployed a technology they recently developed and patented called rapid-spray plasma processing. The method uses a robotic device equipped with two nozzles to quickly produce thin films of perovskite. One nozzle spray coats a liquid solution of perovskite chemical precursors onto a pane of glass, while the other releases a burst of highly reactive ionized gas known as…READ MORE
