Special Issue Information
For perovskite solar cells (PSCs) to become a cost-effective photovoltaic technology, their efficiency, stability and industrialization are the basic merits to consider. Among these aspects, the working stability can become a large obstacle for the development of PSCs, which is mainly due to the light sensitivity of the device. In the past few years, there have been significant advances in studies on the crystal growth process, photo/moisture/oxygen/heat-induced degradation, performance optimization and the device structure design of perovskite solar cells in terms of both mechanisms and solutions. However, how do environmental factors affect the formation/degradation of the perovskite lattice? Which is more suitable for commercial development, component engineering or pure phase perovskite? How can perovskite devices achieve long-term development in the silicon market? These are currently open questions, as well as hot and timely topics. The present Special Issue on “Perovskite Solar Cells” may become a status report summarizing the progress achieved in the last five years.

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 2000 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.
