Polarons, fleeting distortions in a material’s atomic lattice that form around moving electrons, might hold the key to incredibly efficient solar cells made with lead hybrid perovskites.
A team of scientists at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University used X-ray laser to observe the formation of polarons for the first time. They reported their findings in the scientific journal Nature Materials.
