Abstract

Sequential deposition is demonstrated as an effective technology for preparation
of high-performance perovskite solar cells based on lab-scale spin coating.
However, devices fabricated by scalable methods are lagging far behind their
state-of-the-art spin-coated counterparts, largely due to the difficulty in obtaining
high-quality thin films of perovskites crystallized from printed precursors. Here,
a generic strategy that allows sequential deposition of dense and uniform
perovskite films via two-step blade coating is reported. The rational selection of
solvent combined with a mild vacuum extraction process enables us to produce
uniform lead iodide (PbI2) films over large areas. Significantly, the resulting
PbI2 films possess a mesoporous structure that is highly beneficial for the
insertion reaction with methylammonium iodide (MAI). It is further identified
that the deposition temperature of MAI plays an important role in determining
the morphology and crystallinity of the perovskite films. Solar cells using these
sequentially bladed perovskite layers yield efficiencies over 16% with high fill
factors up to 78%. These results represent important progress toward the largescale
deposition of perovskite thin films for practical applications
