In recent years, organic-inorganic hybrid perovskites have attracted wide attention due to their excellent optoelectronic properties in the application of optoelectronic devices. In the manufacturing process of perovskite solar cells, perovskite films inevitably have residual stress caused by non-stoichiometry components and the external load. However, their effects on the structural stability and photovoltaic performance of perovskite solar cells are still not clear. In this work, we…
