Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report for the first time on a hole conductor-free mesocopic lead iodide CH3NH3PbI3(perovskite)/TiO2 heterojunction solar cell, produced by deposition of perovskite nanoparticles from a solution of CH3NH3I and PbI2 in γ-butyrolactone on a 400nm thick film of TiO2 (anatase) nanosheets exposing (001) facets. An Au film was evaporated a on top of the CH3NH3PbI3 served as a back contact. Importantly, the CH3NH3PbI3 nanoparticles act assumes here simultaneously the role of light harvester and hole conductor rendering superfluous the use of an additional hole transporting material. The simple mesoscopic CH3NH3PbI3/TiO2 heterojunction solar cell shows impressive photovoltaic performance with short circuit photocurrent (Jsc) of 16.1 mA/cm2, an open circuit photovoltage (Voc) of 0.631 V and a fill factor (FF) of 0.57, corresponding to a light to electric power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 5.5% under standard AM 1.5 solar light of 1000 W/m2 intensity. At a lower light intensity of 100W/m2 a PCE of 7.3 % was measured. The advent of such simple solution processed mesoscopic heterojunction solar cells paves the way for new advances to realize low cost, high-efficiency solar cells.
