The urgent demands to meet the world's net zero goals facilitate the development of photovoltaic (PV) technologies. Among many solar cells, perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have attracted significant attention, due to their low cost and decent power-conversion efficiency (PCE). Indeed, the PCE of single-junction and multi-junction PSCs has reached 25.7% and 31.3%, respectively, rivalling the conventional silicon cells. However, uncertainties and scientific challenges remain in PSC research and commercialization. For instance, the scalable fabrication of PSCs remains as one major problem in MW- and GW-scale production lines, i.e., the PCE of PSCs decreases rapidly with a larger cell/module area. Moreover, the unsatisfied moisture-, thermal- and light-induced instabilities in these PSCs significantly restrict their practical applications. Therefore, intensive efforts are still required to resolve these issues and enable perovskite PVs to enter the market.
This Special Issue focuses on recent achievements and progress in perovskite PV investigations. We would like to invite you to submit your original research articles, reviews, and perspectives to this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Crystals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
