미래를 창조하는 포스텍 화학공학과
Although perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have attracted enormous attention owing to their fascinating optoelectronic properties and solution processability, defects in PSCs, which adversely affect efficiency and stability, are still not completely resolved. Herein, a novel indacenodithieno[3,2‐b]thiophene‐based small molecule (SM) additive (IDTT‐ThCz), capable of interacting with perovskite layers, is developed. In particular, the IDTT‐ThCz, which can perform a surface passivation, is introduced into the perovskite layer to significantly suppress perovskite defects via antisolvent treatment. Furthermore, this facile surface passivation not only significantly improves the charge extraction capability, but also prevents perovskite degradation. The IDTT‐ThCz‐treated PSCs exhibits a power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 22.5% and retains 95% of its initial PCE after 500 h storage under thermal condition (85 °C), representing the most remarkable efficiency as well as stability among the SM additives reported to date.
