A highly efficient perovskite photovoltaic-aqueous Li/Na-ion battery system

This research was led by Andre Taylor, professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at NYU Tandon.

… In this work, we significantly improve the rate performance of the battery electrodes by asphalt-derived carbon coating, and strategically couple high-efficiency n-i-p type perovskite solar cells with either aqueous lithium or sodium (Li/Na)-ion batteries, for the first time, to create a low-cost and high-performance photovoltaic battery system.
