Solar cells based on solution-processed organic, inorganic and hybrid materials reported thus far generally suffer from poor air stability, require an inert-atmosphere processing environment or necessitate high-temperature processing, all of which increase manufacturing complexities and costs. While the overall efficiency of this cell is still low compared to other types the rate of improvement of this technology is one of the most rapid seen for a solar technology.
