  journal={Advanced Energy Materials},
The unprecedented rise in the power conversion efficiency of solar cells based on metal halide perovskites (MHPs) has led to enormous research effort to understand their photophysical properties. The progress made in understanding the mobility and recombination of photogenerated charge carriers from nanosecond to microsecond time scales, monitored using electrodeless transient photoconductivity techniques, is reviewed. In addition, a kinetic model to obtain rate constants from transient data…

Nonradiative Recombination in Perovskite Solar Cells: The Role of Interfaces

Quantification of the quasi-Fermi level splitting in perovskite films with and without attached transport layers allows to identify the origin of nonradiative recombination, and to explain the VOC of operational devices, proving that in state-of-the-art solar cells,Nonradiatives recombination at the interfaces between the perovkite and the transport layers is more important than processes in the bulk or at grain boundaries.

Crystal Orientation and Grain Size: Do They Determine Optoelectronic Properties of MAPbI3 Perovskite?

Findings show that optoelectronic quality is not necessarily related to the orientation and size of crystalline domains, and despite substantial differences in grain size between the two systems, they find similar optoeLECTronic properties.

Reversible Removal of Intermixed Shallow States by Light Soaking in Multication Mixed Halide Perovskite Films

This work interprets the shallow states as a result of initially well-intermixed halide distributions, which upon light soaking segregate into domains with distinct band gaps, which leads to a reduction in the imbalance between the diffusional motion of electrons and holes.

Charge-Carrier Recombination in Halide Perovskites.

A critical assessment of the factors most likely controlling recombination in the most widely studied halide perovskite systems concludes that multiple trapping or hopping in shallow trap states, and the possible indirect nature of the bandgap, seem to be less likely, at least in high-quality samples most relevant to solar cells and light-emitting diodes.
