On April 14, 2009, the first paper exploring photoelectrochemical properties of metal-halide perovskites in a liquid-junction solar cell was published in Journal of the American Chemical Society by Kojima, Miyasaka, and their colleagues. In just 10 years, research into perovskite photovoltaics has seen phenomenal growth as it energized energy researchers around the world.
The editorial teams of ACS Energy Letters and seven other ACS Publications journals are excited to celebrate milestones in the development of perovskite photovoltaics, originally reported in their journals. They’re reflecting on this decade of fast-moving research on a fascinating and important topic with a collection of stories and progress made.
“The unprecedented popularity of the field, seen through the exponential rise of published papers as well as citations during the last ten-year period, shows the major impact of the discipline in the broader scientific world,” writes ACS Energy Letters Senior Editor Filippo De Angelis in his April 15, 2019, Editorial on the subject. “More than 10,000 papers published during 2009-2018 have garnered nearly 400,000 citations. Of these, 1,069 papers have been identified as Highly Cited papers by Web of Science, having garnered more than 260,000 citations.”
A Decade of Perovskite Photovoltaics Research
The ACS Energy Letters editorial team hopes you’ll enjoy reading about the exciting history of perovskite photovoltaics, as well as some new research in the content they’ve curated for this celebration:
- A special commemorative Perovskite Issue
- An Editorial by Senior Editor Filippo De Angelis: “Celebrating 10 Years of Perovskite Photovoltaics”
- “A Conversation with Professor Tom Miyasaka” (author of original the original JACS paper)
- Two Energy Focus articles: “Perovskite Stories from Around the World” and “Opportunities and Challenges in Perovskite-Based Display Technologies”
- A Virtual Issue with articles from ACS Energy Letters and seven other ACS journals: “ACS Journals Celebrate Ten Years of Perovskite Photovoltaics”
Publish Your Breakthrough Perovskite Research with ACS Energy Letters
“The last ten years have witnessed an unprecedented revolution in thin film photovoltaics with the entry of metal halide perovskites,” writes Professor De Angelis “From an editorial perspective, we see a bright future for fundamentally advancing the basic knowledge as well as engineering more efficient and stable devices in the next ten years. There also lies further scope in searching for new types of devices based on innovative MHP compositions that combine electronic, spin-orbital and ionic properties.”
ACS Energy Letters has been one of the leaders in publishing perovskite research advances. The editorial team wants you to join in shaping the future of this exciting science by submitting your research on perovskite photovoltaics.
“We offer you a platform to publish your groundbreaking perovskite research fast with high-quality peer review and immediate visibility of published work,” says Editor-in-Chief Prashant V. Kamat.
