Organic–inorganic halide perovskite materials have experienced tremendous interest from the research community due to their easy fabrication process and high-power conversion efficiency (PCE). Compared to silicon technology, perovskites have the potential to be employed on flexible substrates and semi-transparent windows, areas where silicon is absent. In less than 15 years, the best perovskite solar cell devices have passed the benchmark of 25.8% PCE, making this emerging technology competitive with conventional silicon cells. Efficiency is not the main challenge anymore in perovskite materials; the research community is now slowly shifting toward a more fundamental and crucial question, which is: “How to build perovskite cells with long-term stability”? In order to facilitate the commercialization of perovskite solar cells, their stability needs to be improved to compete with other technology on the market. In this Special Issue of Crystals, we would like to collect some pioneering works in the field that investigate innovative approaches to increase the stability of perovskite absorbers, such as material composition, halide and cation mixing, surface passivation, interface layers, 2D perovskites, crystal structure and orientation, and more.

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.
