Daniel Sapori came from France to St. Petersburg to do applied research on perovskite solar cells. Now, he works at ITMO’s Laboratory of Hybrid Nanophotonics and Optoelectronics under the supervision of Sergey Makarov.
With the use of a new method for improving solar cells, researchers have been able to boost the functionality and performance of small-molecule-based organic solar cells. The cells can be made transparent and even more stable through the use of carbon nanostructures and a special ionic liquid. Find out more below.

A research group from ITMO University has published a review paper on the prospective use of halide perovskite-based materials, which they believe are capable of causing a revolution in nanophotonics. The paper was spoken highly of by the editorial board of Applied Physics Reviews. In this article, the researchers speak to ITMO.NEWS about the unique qualities of perovskites that will allow them to improve the efficiency of solar cells and describe the advantages of the new material over the conventional silicon.
