Charge-transport in tin-iodide perovskite CH3NH3SnI3: origin of high conductivity.
The present study shows that artificial hole doping indeed enhances the conductivity of a metal-halide cubic perovskite, and is suggested to result from spontaneous hole-doping in the crystallization process, rather than the semi-metal electronic structure.
