Conversion of sunlight to electricity with high conversion efficienciesat low cost is possible with emerging photovoltaictechnologies. Organic–inorganic halide perovskite, a newcomerin the solar cell industry has proved its potential forincreasing efficiency rapidly from 3.8% in 2009 to 22.1% in2016. High efficiency, flexibility, and cell architecture of theemerging hybrid halide perovskite have caught the attentionof researchers and technologists in the field. This article focuseson the emergence, properties, and current research statusof hybrid perovskite solar cells.
