Perovskite solar cells have garnered great attention in recent years as promising high performance next-generation solar cells with long-term stability at low cost. Since the seminal work of Miyasaka and others in 2009, the power conversion efficiency (PCE) of perovskite-based dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) has rapidly increased from 3.8% to 15% over the past four years, exceeding the highest efficiency of conventional organic dye-sensitized DSSCs. Recently, the perovskite has been demonstrated to act successfully as an active layer in simple planar-heterojunction solar cells with no need of complex nanostructured DSSC architectures, leading to an attractively high PCE of 15.4% at a competitive low manufacturing cost. In this Feature Article, we aim to review the recent impressive development in perovskite solar cells, and discuss the prognosis for future progress in exploiting perovskite materials for high efficiency solar cells.
