Perovskite based solar cells have attracted much recent research interest due to the large efficiencies reported for simple planar structures. However, there is a lack of clarity in literature on the key functional parameters that control the eventual efficiencies. In this article, we provide a comprehensive modeling framework, well calibrated with experimental results from literature, to understand/interpret Perovskite based solar cells and suggest further optimization schemes. Indeed, our…
