Over the past decade, metal halide perovskite photovoltaics have been a major focus of research, with single-junction perovskite solar cells evolving from an initial power conversion efficiency of 3.8% to reach 25.5%. The broad bandgap tunability of perovskites makes them versatile candidates as the subcell in a tandem photovoltaics architecture. Stacking photovoltaic absorbers with cascaded bandgaps in a multi-junction device can potentially overcome the Shockley–Queisser efficiency limit of 33.7% for single-junction solar cells. There is now intense activity in developing tandem solar cells that pair perovskite with either itself or with a variety of mature photovoltaic technologies such as silicon and Cu(In,Ga)(S,Se)2 (CIGS). In this review, we survey recent advances in the field and discuss its outlook.
