Towards Large Area Stable Perovskite Solar Cells and Modules
di Giacomo, F.
In order to commercialize the perovskite solar cells (PSC) technology, efficient and industrial deposition methods over large areas have to be adopted, and the device architectures have to provide long term stability. In this work we combine several upscalable deposition methods to develop a stable semitransparent PSC. The control of the uniformity of perovskite crystallization by tailoring the ink formulation and the drying process was pursued in order to drastically reduce the efficiency losses over an area increase of 3 orders of magnitude (from 0.04 to 100 cm2). When adopting sputtered ITO as top electrode, the stack retains up to 90% of the initial performance after 1000hrs at 85 °C. The use of laser patterning to define P1 P2 and P3 scribes for series interconnected modules enables the fabrication of thermally stable minimodule (4cm2) and large module (100cm2). Finally an outlook on the use of the perovskite device as top cell in a 4T tandem architecture with commercial c-Si cells will be provided.
