Organic–inorganic hybrid perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have been considered as promising candidates for the next generation of photovoltaics (PV). The power conversion efficiency (PCE) of a single junction PSC has achieved a maximum of 25.2% within only one decade, already rivaling other existing PV materials such as silicon and GaAs. The superior performance of PSC could be attributed to its long diffusion length, excellent absorption property, ad high defect tolerance, etc. While PSCs have inspired a new era for photovoltaic development, they have also exhibited severe environmental instability problems, i.e., their PCE decaying to nil within only days in ambient conditions, thereby limiting their applications.
This Special Issue focuses on recent developments in perovskite instability problems. We would like to invite you to submit your original research articles and reviews to this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Crystals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
