Roles of the n-type oxide layer in hybrid perovskite solar cells

Abstract : Solar energy is one of the most important resources in our modern life. Photovoltaic is the most important technology to render the solar energy usable since photovoltaic solar cells harvest light coming from sun and convert sunlight into electrical energy. Dye sensitized solar cells have gained widespread attention due to their low cost, easy fabrication technique and tunable choice for the device. A traditional DSSC device includes a dye-sensitized photo-anode, a counter electrode and an electrolyte containing a redox couple system and additives. To improve the device stability, the liquid electrolyte replacement by a solid state hole transport material has been studied in so-called solid-state dye sensitized solar cells (ssDSSCs). Recently, an amazing light perovskite absorber was introduced into the ssDSSC system to replace the dye, opening the new field of research. Perovskite solar cells (PSCs) open a new era in photovoltaic due to the low cost of this material and the high efficiency of these cells. The power conversion efficiency has risen from 3.8% to a certified 20.1% within a few years. The components in the perovskite solar cell include: the compact metal oxide blocking layer, the electron transport layer, the lead halide perovskite layer, the hole transport layer and the back contact. In this thesis, we focused on the preparation and improving the properties of the electron transport layer and the perovskite layer...
