Insect eyes could hold the key to durable perovskite solar cells

The team from Stanford University used the compound eyes of insects as inspiration for the design

A team of scientists from Stanford University has discovered a method of constructing Perovskite Solar Cells with enhanced durability by taking inspiration from the honeycomb structure of insect eyes. The cells, which use a crystalline material called perovskite, are cheaper and easier to produce than traditional silicon cells, and their efficiency has increased significantly since they were introduced in 2009.
