Metal halide perovskites are an emerging technology area for photovoltaic (PV) space applications. The goal of our research is to design a perovskite solar cell (PSC) that can exhibit stable performance, when exposed to space-relevant stress conditions. This presentation will focus on the down-selection of both the contact layers and the encapsulation scheme for potentially space-compatible PSCs.
