Tolerance of Perovskite Solar Cells under Proton and Electron Irradiation

Materials (Basel). 2022 Feb 14;15(4):1393. doi: 10.3390/ma15041393.


In this work, radiation experiments and simulations were carried out on perovskite solar cells (PSCs). The experimental results show that the PSCs in this work were robust to proton irradiation but more sensitive to electron irradiation, which is different from the results of previous studies. Simulations based on the Monte Carlo method show that the energy loss at the interface was much higher than that in the material bulk, and the interface was more sensitive to electron incidents.
