Organo-metal halide perovskite demonstrates a large potential for achieving highly efficient photovoltaic devices. The scaling-up process represents one of the major challenges to exploit this technology at the industrial level. Here, the scaling-up of perovskite solar modules from 5 × 5 to 10 × 10 cm2 substrate area is reported by blade coating both the CH3NH3PbI3 perovskite and spiro-OMeTAD layers. The sequential deposition approach is used in which both lead iodide (PbI2) deposition and the…
