Organic-inorganic halide perovskite solar cells are rapidly growing renewable energy resources in the field of photo-voltaics (PVs). This technology holds great potential for creating highly efficient and economical solar energy de-vices, such as ultra-light, foldable solar cells, space-based solar panels, and colorful building-integrated PVs (BIPVs) for a sustainable carbon-neutral society. The study of these materials also provides insight into the fundamental interactions between photons and semicon-ducting materials. The perovskites have shown remarka-ble advances in solar cell performance, exhibiting high efficiency and excellent tolerance to defects, even when produced through low-temperature solution processes. Additionally, this is the only material that can control the bandgap over a wide range without sacrificing quality. The outstanding photon-to-electric conversion properties of perovskites have led to their ongoing improvement and expansion into other device forms, making it a feasible solution for satisfying a wide range of energy needs. This special issue highlights recent interdisciplinary ap-proaches to innovation in perovskite-based solar cells, covering areas such as performance, next-generation perovskite materials, tandem form factors, and more.
