Special Issue "Perovskite Solar Cells"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2016).
Interests: hybrid photovoltaic systems; growth of hybrid metal halide perovskite materials for both solar cell and lighting applications; understanding of the fundamental properties of metal halide perovskite materials
Hybrid halide perovskite materials have gained a lot of traction in the field of photovoltaics due to their simple processability, high material quality, and extremely high performance, with power conversion efficiencies over 20% already demonstrated, approaching that of state-of-the-art materials. While the biggest advances to performance thus far have arisen from optimization of the perovskite deposition techniques, understanding the role of interfaces in the device is crucial to maximize the performance of the system. This Special Issue will provide a forum to disseminate new developments, generally on perovskite solar cell interfaces, including their properties and their modification, such as passivating or protective layers, as well as the development of new hole and electron transporters.

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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
