PVDX

PVDX [Brown University]

PVDX (Perovskite Visuals and Degradation eXperiment) is a technology demonstration 3U cubesat mission under development by the Brown University to test and characterize a novel photovoltaic technology in space: perovskite solar cells (PSCs).

PSCs are an emerging photovoltaic (PV) technology that has the potential to revolutionize aerospace PVs. They are particularly well-suited for aerospace applications because of their chemical tunability, high specific power, low cost, resistance to radiation, low-light capabilities, self-healing properties, and potential to be manufactured in space. The secondary focus of PVDXs mission is education and engagement, particularly with those from historically underrepresented groups.

It was selected in 2021 by NASA's CubeSat Launch Initiative (CSLI) to be launched as part of the ELaNa program.
