NiO is a wide band gap p-type oxide semiconductor and has potential for applications in solar energy conversion as a hole-transporting layer (HTL). It also has good optical transparency and high chemical stability, and the capability of aligning the band edges to the perovskite (CH3NH3PbI3) layers. Ultra-thin and un-doped NiO films with much less absorption(More)
In recent studies of inorganic materials for energy applications, surface modification processes have been shown to be among the most effective methods to enhance the performance of devices. Here, we demonstrate a facile nano-decoration method which is generally applicable to anatase TiO2 nanostructures, as well as a nano-decorated hierarchical TiO2(More)
Low-temperature-processed perovskite solar cells (PSCs), especially those fabricated on flexible substrates, exhibit device performance that is worse than that of high-temperature-processed PSCs. One of the main reasons for the inferior performance of low-temperature-processed PSCs is the loss of photogenerated electrons in the electron collection layer(More)
Given that the highest certified conversion efficiency of the organic-inorganic perovskite solar cell (PSC) already exceeds 22 %, which is even higher than that of the polycrystalline silicon solar cell, the significance of new scalable processes that can be utilized for preparing large-area devices and their commercialization is rapidly increasing. From(More)
Organic-inorganic perovskites with intriguing optical and electrical properties have attracted significant research interests due to their excellent performance in optoelectronic devices. Recent efforts on preparing uniform and large-grain polycrystalline perovskite films have led to enhanced carrier lifetime up to several microseconds. However, the(More)
We report the electrical properties of rubidium-incorporated methylammonium lead iodide ((RbxMA1-x)PbI3) films and the photovoltaic performance of (RbxMA1-x)PbI3 film-based p-i-n-type perovskite solar cells (PSCs). The incorporation of a small amount of Rb+ (x = 0.05) increases both the open circuit voltage (Voc) and the short circuit photocurrent density(More)
Niobium doped hierarchically organized TiO2 nanostructures composed of 20 nm size anatase nanocrystals were synthesized using pulsed laser deposition (PLD). The Nb doping concentration could be facilely controlled by adjusting the concentration of Nb in target materials. We could investigate the influence of Nb doping in the TiO2 photoelectrode on the cell(More)
We demonstrated the formation of monodispersed spherical aluminum hydrous oxide precursors with tunable sizes by controlling the variables of a forced hydrolysis method. The particle sizes of aluminum hydrous oxide precursors were strongly dependent on the molar ratio of the Al(3+) reactants (sulfates and nitrates). In addition, the systematic phase and(More)
Herein, we report on the synthesis of phase-pure rutile walnut-like TiO(2) (W-TiO(2)) spheres composed of single-crystalline nanorod-building blocks using a surfactant-free non-aqueous acidic modified "benzyl alcohol route". Based on the various HCl concentration- and reaction time-dependent experiments, an effect of hydrochloric acid on the phase formation(More)
