Abstract:
In this research, the effects of inorganic Copper Iodide (CuI) hole transport layer (HTL) is investigated on the perovskite solar cells (PSCs). In addition, mixed halides perovskite (Cs0.05(MA0.17FA0.83)0.95Pb(I0.83Br0.17)3) was applied as a light-absorbing layer in the conventional structure of PSCs. Copper Iodide with high mobility 0.5–2 cm2/Vs and large bandgap energy 3.1eV is one of the best alternative of organic hole transport materials in the solar cells. The p-type thin layer of CuI was deposited on the perovskite layer by spin coating technique with 0.1 M CuI solution in chlorobenzene. CuI-based PSCs with nearly simple deposition process exhibited excellent current density and proper efficiency in compared with HTL free PSCs. The maximum power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 8.12% was obtained for the PSC with CuI hole transport layer, which is the highest efficiency reported so far for CuI-based dopant-free PSCs. In addition to PCE, current density (Jsc) was increased more than 119% compared to the PSCs with HTL free.
