Mixed-cation organic lead halide perovskites attract unfaltering attention owing to their excellent photovoltaic properties. Currently, the best performing perovskite materials contain multiple cations and provide power conversion efficiencies up to around 22%. Here, we report the first quantitative, cation-specific data on cation reorientation dynamics in hybrid mixed-cation formamidinium (FA)/methylammonium (MA) lead halide perovskites. We use 14N, 2H, 13C, and 1H solid-state MAS NMR to elucidate cation reorientation dynamics, microscopic phase composition, and the MA/FA ratio, in (MA)x(FA)1–xPbI3 between 100 and 330 K. The reorientation rates correlate in a striking manner with the carrier lifetimes previously reported for these materials and provide evidence of the polaronic nature of charge carriers in PV perovskites.
