Also in this episode are Akihiro Kojima and Mike Lee, who are two of seven winners of the 2022 Rank Prize for Optoelectronics – which has been given “For the discovery and development of all-solid-state perovskite semiconductor solar cells”. Kojima and Lee talk about the potential that perovskites have for creating high-performance solar cells and also chat about where their careers have taken them since they did their award-winning work.
