Perovskite Photovoltaics For many types of low-cost solar cells, including those using dye-sensitized titania, performance is limited by low open-circuit voltages. Lee et al. (p. 643, published online 4 October; see the Perspective by Norris and Aydil) have developed a solid-state cell in which structured films of titania or alumina nanoparticles are solution coated with a lead-halide perovskite layer that acts as the absorber and n-type photoactive layer. These particles are coated with a… 
Efficient planar heterojunction perovskite solar cells by vapour deposition
TLDR
It is shown that perovskite absorbers can function at the highest efficiencies in simplified device architectures, without the need for complex nanostructures.
Heterojunction modification for highly efficient organic-inorganic perovskite solar cells.
TLDR
Through spectroscopic measurements, it is found that electron transfer from the perovskite to the TiO2 in the standard planar junction cells is very slow, so fullerene-modified devices achieve up to 17.3% power conversion efficiency with significantly reduced hysteresis, and stabilized power output reaching 15.7% in the planar p-i-n heterojunction solar cells measured under simulated AM 1.5 sunlight.

ZrO2/TiO2 Electron Collection Layer for Efficient Meso-Superstructured Hybrid Perovskite Solar Cells.
TLDR
An electron collection "bilayer" composed of a thin layer of zirconia coated with titania, sitting upon the transparent conductive oxide fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) and a mechanism of the charge transfer processes within the fabricated architectures in order to explain the obtained performance of the devices.
