Understanding the rate-dependent JV hysteresis, slow time component, and aging in CH3NH3PbI3 perovskite solar cells: the role of a compensated electric field

Ionic displacement modifying the electric field in the device is found as most likely reason for the hysteresis which is examined by separating fast and slow processes and comparing devices with and without blocking layer.

About this collection

The EES Readers’ Choice Lectureship is awarded annually to one outstanding young scientist selected by the Editorial Board, from a shortlist of authors of the most-read articles from each issue of EES in the previous year. This collection features the Lectureship-winning articles by award winners since 2012.

The 2018 Lectureship was awarded to Professor Guo-liang Chai. Based at Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter (FJIRSM), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), his current research interests focus on functional materials for energy storage and conversion.
