Australian researchers claim world first in global race to develop better solar panels squib

Experimental cell using the potentially game-changing material perovskite passes a series of heat and humidity tests

A team of Australian researchers are claiming a world first in a global race to develop cheaper, more flexible and more efficient solar panels after their experimental cell passed a series of heat and humidity tests.

Using a type of crystal material known as perovskite, the group found that a simple glass and synthetic rubber coating around the cell was enough to stop it from degrading too quickly.
