State-of-the-art photovoltaics use high-purity, large-area, wafer-scale single-crystalline semiconductors grown by sophisticated, high-temperature crystal growth processes. We demonstrate a solution-based hot-casting technique to grow continuous, pinhole-free thin films of organometallic perovskites with millimeter-scale crystalline grains. We fabricated(More)
Three-dimensional organic-inorganic perovskites have emerged as one of the most promising thin-film solar cell materials owing to their remarkable photophysical properties, which have led to power conversion efficiencies exceeding 20 per cent, with the prospect of further improvements towards the Shockley-Queisser limit for a single‐junction solar cell(More)
Solution-processed organometallic perovskite solar cells have emerged as one of the most promising thin-film photovoltaic technology. However, a key challenge is their lack of stability over prolonged solar irradiation. Few studies have investigated the effect of light soaking on hybrid perovskites and have attributed the degradation in the optoelectronic(More)
Understanding and controlling charge and energy flow in state-of-the-art semiconductor quantum wells has enabled high-efficiency optoelectronic devices. Two-dimensional (2D) Ruddlesden-Popper perovskites are solution-processed quantum wells wherein the band gap can be tuned by varying the perovskite-layer thickness, which modulates the effective(More)
Precise manipulation of organic donor-acceptor interfaces using spacer layers is demonstrated to suppress interface recombination in an organic photo-voltaic device. These strategies lead to a dramatic improvement in a model bilayer system and bulk-heterojunction system. These interface strategies are applicable to a wide variety of donor-acceptor systems,(More)
The performance of organic-inorganic mul-tilayer ultrabarriers for encapsulation of organic and other environmentally sensitive electronics is limited by unavoidable pin-holes in the inorganic layer (typically AlO x and SiO x) during vacuum deposition. [ 1–3 ] Increasing the thickness of the inorganic fi lm can mitigate this limitation but introduces new(More)
