Graphene and photovoltaics

Dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) cover more than two decades of photovoltaics (PV) research and are still attracting a significant attention for potential industrial applications. The advantages of employing Graphene in DSSCs has been demonstrated.

Perovskite solar cells (PSCs) are demonstrating great potential to compete with second generation photovoltaics. Nevertheless, the key issue hindering PSCs full exploitation relies on their stability. Among the strategies devised to overcome this problem, the use of carbon nanostructures (CNSs) as hole transporting materials (HTMs) has given impressive results in terms of solar cells stability to moisture, air oxygen, and heat.
