Abstract

Perovskite solar cells (PSCs) based on organometal halide light absorbers have hit the limelight in recent years owing to their low temperature solution processability, material abundance and rapidly rising efficiency. To rival the leading photovoltaic technologies, efficiency and long-term stability of PSCs represent two prime facets of the challenges currently facing the research community. Herein we summarize the strategies for improving efficiency and stability of PSCs by drawing on our recent work. Emphasis is given to the importance of perovskite film growth, electron/hole transport materials and interface materials in cell performance. We also discuss possible degradation mechanisms of PSCs.
