Abstract

Perovskite-based solar cells have shown tremendous increase in the efficiency over the past few years and simultaneously have low processing cost. However, the stability of the material and hence of the device is still a challenge. In order to improve the ambient condition processing and stability of perovskite solar cells, we adopt two strategies - 1) Addition of a protective material tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS), in the perovskite layer that protects the perovskite material from exposure to moisture, and 2) Aerosol method to fabricate the perovskite layer. The devices are prepared and tested under ambient humidity (30-50%).
