Title: Photovoltaic Devices Based on Colloidal PbX Quantum Dots: Progress and Prospects

Abstract

Here, a certified power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 12.0% and an outstanding air stability has been achieved for PbX quantum dots (QDs) solar cells, indicating strong potential for next generation low-cost solution-processed photovoltaics. Similar progress has been made in several other solar cell architectures employing PbX QD absorbers. This article aims to review the recent progress in understanding the photovoltaic-relevant properties of PbX QDs and highlight their application in various types of photovoltaic devices. In doing so, we hope that the unique properties of PbX QDs can be better understood in a broader context, and their potential can be fully realized with the aiding of other photovoltaic materials and novel device structures.
