This study, published in ACS Energy Letters, reports one of the highest PCE for single-junction devices fabricated by lost die coating as well as showing the first example of slot-die coated perovskite/silicon tandems on textured interfaces.
In this work we report perovskite solar cells in the planar p-i-n configuration based on single-step, anti-solvent free, low-temperature (70 oC) slot-die coated methylammonium lead tri-iodide (MAPbI3). The devices are fabricated on hydrophobic PTAA surfaces, using key strategies such as solvent engineering, enhanced ink-substrate dynamics, and surface passivation, enabling a power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 21.8%. We also adapted the technique to achieve the first slot-die coated perovskite/silicon monolithic 2-terminal tandems, achieving a PCE of 23.8% utilizing a textured silicon bottom cell.
