A researcher from the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology holds out a perovskite solar cell, which it says boasts the world’s highest efficiency rate, Tuesday. 

Co-developed by UNIST, the Korea Institute of Energy Research and Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne, the next-generation solar cell can convert solar energy into usable energy at a rate of 25.6 percent. 

The previous record holder was the Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology, which developed a perovskite cell with 25.2 percent efficiency. (Yonhap)
