Improved Electron Transport in MAPbI3 Perovskite Solar Cells Based on Dual Doping Graphdiyne
Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China
The properties of electron transport layers play a crucial role in determining the performance of perovskite solar cells. Here we reported the effect of graphdiyne doped into both PCBM and ZnO films of perovskite solar cells with an inverted structure based on MAPbI3 for the first time. A high efficiency of 20.0% was achieved in MAPbI3 perovskite solar cells with the J-V hysteresis and stability significantly improved as well. It reveals that the employment of dual-doping of graphdiyne not only brought out an increase of electrical conductivity, electron mobility, and charge extraction ability in the electron transport layers, but improved film morphology of the electron transport layers and reduced charge recombination which contribute to fill factor enhancement. This study indicates that dual doping graphdiyne is a promising strategy to optimize the performance of perovskite solar cells.
