Solar cells (like people!) work better with caffeine

Credit: Marc Roseboro/CNSI Adding caffeine to perovskite solar cells could help make them commercially viable because the chemical improves their ability to withstand sustained heat from sunlight. Scientists at the California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA have found that caffeine improves the stability of materials under heat – a property known as thermal stability — of perovskite solar cells, which could someday replace
