Abstract

Hybrid halide perovskites represent one of the most promising solutions toward the fabrication of all solid nanostructured solar cells with improved efficiency and long-term stability. This article aims at investigating the structural properties of the iodide/chloride mixed-halide perovskites and correlating them with the photovoltaic performances of the related sensitized solar cells. We found out that, independently on the components ratio in the precursor solution, Cl incorporation, in a I-based structure, is possible only at relatively low concentration levels (below 3-4%). However, even if the material band-gap remains substantially unchanged, incorporation of Cl as a dopant dramatically improves the charge transport within the perovskite layer, explaining the outstanding performances of meso-superstructured solar cells based on this material.
