Climate change caused by fossil fuels is becoming a global concern to human beings. Now, energy is on the global agenda in terms of technology as well as politics. Taking these situations into consideration, this thematic series focuses on the advanced nanomaterials and devices for next generation energy related technologies. Papers in this thematic series introduce and review the recent advances in the emerging nanomaterials and devices for the energy harvesting, conversion and storage technologies.


  1. Research

    Lead-free perovskite solar cells using Sb and Bi-based A3B2X9 and A3BX6 crystals with normal and inverse cell structures

    Research of CH3NH3PbI3 perovskite solar cells had significant attention as the candidate of new future energy. Due to the toxicity, however, lead (Pb) free photon harvesting layer should be discovered to replace ...

  2. Research

    All-inorganic inverse perovskite solar cells using zinc oxide nanocolloids on spin coated perovskite layer

    We confirmed the influence of ZnO nanoparticle size and residual water on performance of all inorganic perovskite solar cells. By decreasing the size of the ZnO nanoparticles, the short-circuit current density (J...
