Cafe Sci Cambridge: The future of perovskites for solar power and lighting

Join us for this virtual Cafe Sci Cambridge Book Now
Date: 
Tue 14th Jul,
1:00pm to 2:30pm

Imagine a world with cheap, abundant solar power and lighting, where we roll off spools of inexpensive and even coloured, high-performance solar panels or LEDs like newsprint. Halide perovskites are generating enormous excitement as next-generation solar cells and lighting technologies that can be produced at extremely low cost on flexible spools.

Dr Sam Stranks, University Lecturer in Energy in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology and Department of Physics (University of Cambridge) reveals recent breakthroughs and discusses their future as a ground-breaking technology and the challenges to get there.

The event is free to join, but please make sure you book your ticket. Once booked you will receive information on how to join. Please let us know if you have any issues.
