Perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have been regarded as a promising next-generation photovoltaic technology that has shown unprecedented development in power conversion efficiency (PCE) during the last decade because of the intriguing optoelectronic qualities of perovskite materials. Although the certified PCE of PSCs has been enhanced up to 25.5% in the single-junction structure, long-term stability is still a critical restraining factor for their commercial application because the frail stability…
