In the past few years, the meteoric development of hybrid organic-inorganic perovskite solar cells (PSC) astonished the community. The efficiency has already reached the level needed for commercialization; however, the instability hinders its deployment on the market. Here, we report a mechanism to chemically stabilize PSC absorbers. We propose to replace the widely used methylammonium cation (CH3NH3(+)) by alternative molecular cations allowing an enhanced electronic coupling between the… CONTINUE READING
