While perovskite has begun to branch out into transistors and nanowire lasers, it already has a stellar reputation as an alternative to silicon in photovoltaics.

However, perovskite’s rise to glory in the field of solar cells has not come without a few hiccups. One of the key problems has been that the production processes for making the material involves some toxic lead compounds.

Now researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are...
