Paintable carbon electrode-based perovskite solar cells (PSCs) are of particular interest due to their material and fabrication process costs, as well as their moisture stability. However, printing the carbon paste on the perovskite layer limits the quality of the interface between the perovskite layer and carbon electrode. Herein, an attempt to enhance the performance of the paintable carbon-based PSCs is made using a modified solvent dripping method that involves dripping of the carbon nanotubes (CNTs), which is dispersed in chlorobenzene solution. This method allows CNTs to penetrate into both the perovskite film and carbon electrode, facilitating fast hole transport between the two layers. Furthermore, this method is results in increased open circuit voltage (Voc) and fill factor (FF), providing better contact at the perovskite/carbon interfaces. The best devices made with CNT dripping show 13.57% power conversion efficiency and hysteresis-free performance. A novel approach for efficient carbon-based perovskite solar cells is explored using a modified solvent engineering method, which involves dripping of carbon nanotube (CNT)-dispersed in chlorobenzene solution, while spin-coating perovskite precursor solution. This method resolves the intrinsically low-quality of perovskite/carbon interface. In addition, the CNTs act as pathways for fast hole extraction to the carbon electrode.
