Scientists unveil first printable, stable perovskite solar cell good for 10K hours

Scientists at institutions in Switzerland and Italy may have finally achieved what researchers have been working towards since 2009: a stable perovskite solar cell. Their solar cells remained stable in the real world for longer than a year.
