Upscaling perovskite photovoltaics from cell to module level with scalable processes is a key challenge. Researchers at IMT and LTI have now produced perovskite solar modules with almost no loss of scaling. They combine laser-scribed interconnection lines with the ease of co-evaporated perovskites.

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy of minute sample volumes inside low-field portable,  permanent magnets is made possible by a new MEMS based probe head developed by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The probe induces large non-equilibrium spin polarisation, dramatically  boosting the signal-to-noise-ratio of the NMR measurement (CAD-Drawing: S. Kiss, KIT).
