Review of recent progress in chemical stability of perovskite solar cells

Author affiliations

Abstract

In recent years, the record efficiency of perovskite solar cells (PSCs) has been updated from 9.7% to 20.1%. However, there has been very little study of the issue of stability, which restricts the outdoor application of PSCs. The issues of the degradation of perovskite and the stability of PSC devices should be urgently addressed to achieve good reproducibility and long lifetimes for PSCs with high conversion efficiency. Without studies on stability, exciting achievements cannot be transferred from the laboratory to industry and outdoor applications. In order to improve their stability, a basic understanding of the degradation process of PSCs in different conditions should be acquired via thorough study. This review summarizes recent studies of the relationship of the chemical stability of PSCs with their environment (oxygen and moisture, UV light, solution process, temperature) and corresponding possible solutions.
