Selective Organic Contacts for Methyl Ammonium Lead Iodide (MAPI) Perovskite Solar Cells: Influence of Layer Thickness on Carriers Extraction and Carriers Lifetime

Selective Organic Contacts for Methyl Ammonium Lead Iodide (MAPI) Perovskite Solar Cells: Influence of Layer Thickness on Carriers Extraction and Carriers Lifetime

We have fabricated MAPI solar cells using as selective contacts PEDOT:PSS polymer for holes and PCBM-C70 fullerene derivative for electrons. The thickness of MAPI, PCBM-C70, and PEDOT:PSS layers has been varied in order to evaluate the contribution of each layer to the final device performance. We have measured the devices capacitance under illumination and the charge carrier’s lifetime using photoinduced time-resolved techniques. The results show that in this kind of devices the limiting layer is the PCBM-C70 due to its relative reduced mobility compared to PEDOT:PSS that makes the control of the fullerene thickness crucial for device optimization. Moreover, capacitive measurements show differences for the devices having different PCBM-C70 layer thicknesses in contrast with the measurements on the different PEDOT:PSS thickness. These give indications about holes and electrons storage and their distribution.
