Abstract

Efforts toward developing efficient and stable inorganic hole transport materials for inverted perovskite CH3NH3PbI3 solar cells are underway. Herein, a wide bandgap p-type quaternary chalcogenide Cu2BaSnS4 semiconductor is demonstrated as a promising hole transport material in inverted perovskite CH3NH3PbI3 thin-film solar cells owing to its satisfactory chemical stability, high carrier mobility (∼10 cm2 V−1 s−1), and suitable band alignment with CH3NH3PbI3. Our inverted solar cell based on a 100 nm thick Cu2BaSnS4 hole transport layer achieves a best PCE of ∼10% with a low degree of current–voltage scan hysteresis.
