Perovskite SJ and Pero/Si Tandem technologies are attracting significant attention from both scientific and industrial societies due to rapid increases in efficiency, from approximately 3% in 2009 to over 33% today. Several efforts are made to characterize the technological bottlenecks, overcome them and push the technology to the commercial world through the PV module upscaling. This imposes a pre-industrial stage, where different equipment from coating systems such as blade coating, slot-die coating and spray coating to printing paths such as screen, inkjet and gravure printing as well as methods of vacuum deposition and laser processing are currently used to support the potential of PSCs to move towards their industrialization. VIPERLAB today introduces CEA and IMEC VIPERLAB Research Infrastructures offering State-of-the-art equipment for Fabrication, Characterization, Encapsulation, Upscaling and Testing of Perovskite SJ and Pero/Si Tandem Solar Cells

The 2nd yearly meeting of the Viperlab project was organized by ENEA partner in Portici from the 24th to the 25th of May. The event was joined to 2nd workshop on precise Measurement of #Perovskite Silicon Tandem #SolarCells. All 28 participants, representing each partner, workpackage and project's task, were actively engaged in discussions and shared their working group achievements, challenges, and lessons learned during the previous period. The meeting provided a platform for open dialogue, fostering an environment of mutual trust and cooperation, to achive in time the project goals.

The stability of perovskite devices is a key point should be addressed to achieve commercialisation. The key factors influencing the stability of the devices are the exposure to oxygen and moisture, UV light, solution processing and thermal effects. Encapsulation and standard testing protocols are required to check and improve stability. The two presented infrastructures offer state of the art equipment for the Perovskite Stability testing of materials and devices.

We present other two VIPERLAB Research Infrastructures. The first, CHOSE consists of two main infrastructures: the CHOSE@ROME, is located on the campus of the University of Rome Tor Vergata (Italy), and focuses on technological manufacturing processes and device characterization. CHOSE@TURIN, is an infrastructure associated with the University of Turin (Italy) focused on the development of materials. The secon, AIT Viperlab Reseach infrastructures focusses on characterization and reliability tools for the accreditation tests of PV modules, and tools for PV deposition, characterization/reliability and development of thin film coatings.

Metal-halide perovskites made a breakthrough in photovoltaic and light-emitting technologies in the last ten years. Dr. Annalisa Bruno's talk will show why thermal evaporation is a promising perovskite fabrication technique to bring this technology closer to production, by relying on excellent size scalability, promising stability, fine composition control, and surface adaptability. Perovskite fabricated by co-evaporation show remarkable structural robustness and impressive thermal stability. Dr. Bruno will present the results achieved by her team on semi-transparent PSCs and mini modules with a wide range of colors. Lastly she will further discuss how these results represent a significant step toward the commercialization of the perovskite technology
