Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050; CODEN: SUSTDE) is an international, cross-disciplinary, scholarly, peer-reviewed and open access journal of environmental, cultural, economic, and social sustainability of human beings. Sustainability provides an advanced forum for studies related to sustainability and sustainable development, and is published monthly online by MDPI.

Special issue: Emerging Photovoltaic Materials for High-Performance/stable Photovoltaic Applications

Special issue information

Various photovoltaics (PV) devices employing inorganic, organic, and hybrid organic-inorganic materials have shown notable progress in terms of improving power conversion efficiency and stability over the past decade. Discovery of superior PV materials, maximum utilization of sunlight through tandem device structure, defect engineering by nanotechnology, and introduction of novel functional nanostructure led to the improvement in PV device performance exceeding more than 22%. Nevertheless, the aforementioned PV devices are still suffering from critical issues such as material scarcity, instability, toxicity, power generation cost and etc. To address such challenges of PV materials and devices, this special issue aims to discuss the state-of-the-art advances in various PV applications including inorganic (e.g., Si, CIGSSe, CZTSSe), dye-sensitized, organic, and organic-inorganic hybrid (i.e., perovskite) solar cells. Thus, we would like to invite authors to submit their original and high-quality research articles or review papers on novel PV material design/synthesis, device structure, and material/device processing, advanced characterization technologies and modeling toward high-performance/stable photovoltaic devices.

Topics to be covered in this special issue
  • Earth-abundant photovoltaic materials and high efficiency devices beyond chalcopyrite-based chalcogenides
  • Emerging orgainc-inorganic hybrid photovoltaic materials and devices with long-term stability beyond Pb-based perovskite halides
  • Novel photovoltaic device structure, chacracterization and modeling toward ultrahigh PV performance
※ PV absorber materials will not be limited to well-known Si, CZTSSe, MAPbI3, and related compounds.
