Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The next crucial step toward commercialization is the accurate assessment of the operational stability of perovskite solar cells, which have power-conversion efficiencies nearing those of conventional photovoltaic technologies. According to recent research, the movement of ions and point defects, as well as the entrapment of different charge carriers, are three main intrinsic causes of deterioration. Additionally, lighted circumstances support the production of secondary phases and photo-induced ion movement. It is still not understood how these inherent degradation elements impact the defect states and intrinsic characteristics of perovskite, although it is known that excess charge carriers and ion migrations would eventually be detrimental to the long-term stability of PSCs. Perovskite flaws can be somewhat modified depending on the environment and manufacturing process.

This Special Issue focuses on achieving and developing new layers based on charge transport, trap-stated or passivation layers for more stable and efficient perovskite solar cells. We would like to invite you to submit your original research articles and reviews.

Dr. Ahmed Mourtada Elseman

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.
