CsPb0.9Sn0.1IBr2 Based All-Inorganic Perovskite Solar Cells with Exceptional Efficiency and Stability.
The emergence of perovskite solar cells (PSCs) has generated enormous interest in the photovoltaic research community. Recently, cesium metal halides (CsMX3, M = Pb or Sn; X = I, Br, Cl or mixed halides) as a class of inorganic perovskites showed great promise for PSCs and other optoelectronic devices. However, CsMX3-based PSCs usually exhibit lower power conversion efficiencies (PCEs) than organic-inorganic hybrid PSCs, due to the unfavorable band gaps. Herein, a novel mixed-Pb/Sn mixed-halide inorganic perovskite, CsPb0.9Sn0.1IBr2, with a suitable band gap of 1.79 eV and an appropriate level of valence band maximum, was prepared in ambient atmosphere without a glovebox. After thoroughly eliminating labile organic components and noble metals, the all-inorganic PSCs based on CsPb0.9Sn0.1IBr2 and carbon counter electrodes exhibit a high open-circuit voltage of 1.26 V and a remarkable PCE up to 11.33%, which is record-breaking among the existing CsMX3-based PSCs. Moreover, the all-inorganic PSCs show good long-term stability and improved endurance against heat and moisture. This study indicates a feasible way to design inorganic halide perovskites through energy-band engineering for the construction of high-performance all-inorganic PSCs.
