Abstract

Organic–inorganic halide perovskites have attracted enormous attention owing to their promising application in photovoltaic devices. The morphology of the perovskites is the key to driving the performance of perovskite devices, which necessitates a systematic study. In this work, two typical morphologies, i.e., flake and cube, of perovskite films are fabricated, and the temperature-dependent optical absorption and photoluminescence properties of the two types of perovskite film are systematically investigated. From the temperature-dependent spectra, both exciton and phase transition temperatures of the flake film are found to be about 10 K lower than those of the cube one. Meanwhile, the influences of the morphology on the exciton binding energy, optical phonon energy and polaron binding energy are quantitatively characterized. The exciton binding of the flake film is nearly three times smaller than that of the cube one, while the phonon coupling energy and the polaron binding energy of the former are about 5 meV and 2 meV larger than those of the latter. Furthermore, the results of photoluminescence lifetime and charge separation efficiency further reveal that the charge carrier kinetics in the two kinds of perovskite films is significantly different. The current study provides a theoretical framework to understand the fundamental physics of perovskites and to promote the design and enhancement of active materials for improved optoelectronic devices.
