One-step solution process is the simplest method to fabricate organic–inorganic metal halide perovskite thin films, which however does not work well when employed in the planar-heterojunction (PHJ) solar cells due to the generally poor film morphology. Here we show that hydrazinium chloride can be used as an additive in the precursor solution to produce perovskite films featuring higher coverage and better crystallinity. The light absorption ability and charge carrier lifetime are both significantly improved accordingly. Under the optimal additive ratio, the average power conversion efficiency (PCE) of the inverted PHJ perovskite solar cells greatly increases by as much as 70%, and the champion device shows a satisfying PCE of 12.66%. These results suggest that N2H5Cl is a promising additive for fabricating high-efficiency perovskite solar cells via one-step method, which could be of interest in the future commercial solar cell industry.
