Organic–inorganic halide perovskites are intrinsically unstable when exposed to moisture and/or light. Additionally, the presence of lead in many perovskites raises toxicity concerns. Herein, a thin film of barium zirconium sulfide (BaZrS3), a lead‐free chalcogenide perovskite, is reported. Photoluminescence and X‐ray diffraction measurements show that BaZrS3 is far more stable than methylammonium lead iodide (MAPbI3) in moist environments. Moisture‐ and light‐induced degradations in BaZrS3 and…
