In perovskite solar cells, the interfaces between the perovskite and charge-transporting layers contain high concentrations of defects (about 100 times that within the perovskite layer), specifically, deep-level defects, which substantially reduce the power conversion efficiency of the devices1-3. Recent efforts to reduce these interfacial defects have focused mainly on surface passivation4-6. However, passivating the perovskite surface that interfaces with the electron-transporting layer is…

TLDR
The interface engineering of the SnO2/FAPbI3 perovskite using PbX2 (X = Cl, Br, or I) as an interlayer is extensively studied using first-principles calculations, revealing that the thickness of the PbI2 interlayer needs to be finely controlled, which may limit charge transport if there is a large amount of P bI2 precipitation at the interface.
