Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Photovoltaic (PV) devices play a vital role in converting solar energy into electricity, offering a promising avenue for mitigating carbon emissions and addressing the escalating demand for energy consumption. Several PV technologies have helped to shape the environment of renewable sources of energy. Perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have emerged as particularly noteworthy contenders in this area. Based on thin films (<1 mm), simple deposition methods promise to reduce production costs and produce high-quality semiconductors for solar cells, rivaling other established ones such as Si, CdTe, and GaAs. Within just a few years, PSCs have achieved PCEs comparable to those of established CdTe solar cells, surpassing the 22% mark in 2016. Therefore, the pursuit of highly efficient perovskite solar cells in response to pressing economic concerns has become paramount. Driven by their physicochemical properties, high power conversion efficiencies, flexibility, low manufacturing costs, and long-term stability, perovskite solar cells are considered to be one of the most promising photovoltaic technologies.

This Special Issue, titled “Advanced Energy Materials for Flexible Perovskite Solar Cells”, aims to delve into the latest achievements in perovskite solar cells, covering novel materials, device structures, technologies, and characterization methods. This Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive overview of both experimental and theoretical approaches, showcasing the cutting-edge developments in this field.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
