Nanotechnologies and nanostructured materials are attracting significant attention as most promising candidates for achieving drastic improvement of solar energy conversion efficiency in next-generation nanostructured-based perovskite solar cells (PSCs). In this review, we focus on the latest achievements in construction of efficient PSCs and describe new trends in perovskite solar photovoltaics including the development of high-performance perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells, inorganic PSCs with stabilized efficiency and a new generation of PSCs for low lighting conditions that opens great possibilities for indoor applications. A special attention is paid also to the development of new types of efficient photoelectrodes for PSCs based on very large band gap metal oxides.
Keywords: nanostructures, nanotechnologies, perovskite solar cells, ZrO2, thin films, semiconductors, tandem solar cells.
