Abstract

Hole transport layers (HTLs) plays critical role in CsPbI2Br perovskite solar cells (PSCs). However, few studies have been done to develop new and sensitive-dopant-free HTL for CsPbI2Br PSCs. Here, a low-cost fluorinated N',N',N'',N''-tetrakis(4-methoxyphenyl)spiro[fluorene-9,9'-xanthene]-2,7-diamine (2mF-X59) was synthesized and applied as sensitive-dopant-free HTL into CsPbI2Br PSCs. After modified the 2mF-X59 and CsPbI2Br surface by 2,3,5,6-tetrafluoro-7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquino-dimethane (F4-TCNQ), a maximum power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 14.42% was obtained for CsPbI2Br PSC with an impressive open-circuit voltage (Voc) of 1.23 V, which is higher than that of the most previously reported CsPbI2Br PSCs with the doped Spiro-OMeTAD. More importantly, the CsPbI2Br PSCs with the newly developed HTLs showed remarkable stability retaining more than 94% of their initial PCE value after aging in air for 30 days without encapsulation. Therefore, we firmly believe that our new 2mF-X59 HTL created via molecular engineering is a promising candidate for preparing high performance CsPbI2Br PSCs.
