Developing novel materials for renewable energy production will be critical to combatting climate change. Perovskite materials show promise for next-generation solar cells, but are limited by instabilities related to point defect migration. In this talk, we explore the detrimental effects of point defects in perovskite materials and how understanding point defects is a key step towards commercial perovskite solar cells.
