MAPbI3 Solar Cells with Absorber Deposited by Resonant Infrared Matrix-Assisted Pulsed Laser Evaporation

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Resonant infrared, matrix-assisted pulsed laser evaporation (RIR-MAPLE) is a gentle thin-film deposition technique that combines the facile chemical control of solution processing with the growth control of vapor-phase deposition, yet one that has not been widely applied to crystalline organic-inorganic hybrid materials. In this work, we investigate the optoelectronic quality of RIR-MAPLE-deposited CH3NH3PbI3 (MAPbI3) perovskite films and report on the fabrication of perovskite solar cells in which the absorber is deposited by RIR-MAPLE. We find the composition, morphology, and optical properties of these perovskite films to be comparable to those produced by more conventional methods, such as spin coating. The champion device reaches a stabilized power conversion efficiency of over 12%, a high value for perovskite solar cells deposited by a laser ablation process, highlighting the ability of this new technique to produce device-quality films.
