In order to achieve the highest performance of organometal trihalide perovskite solar cells, it is required to recognize the dominant mechanisms which play a key role in a perovskite material. In the following studies, we have focused on the interfacial recombination between the hole transporting layer (HTL) and the perovskite CH3NH3PbI3 in solar cell devices with p–i–n architecture. It has been shown that Cu:NiOx : used as HTL...
Influence of orientational disorder on the optical absorption properties in hybrid metal‐halide perovskite CH3NH3PbI3. A combined DFT/TD‐DFT and experimental study.Publication
An experimental and theoretical investigation is reported to analyze the relation between the structural and absorption properties of CH3NH3PbI3 in the tetragonal phase. More than 3000 geometry optimizations were performed in order to reveal the structural disorder and to identify structures with the lowest energies. The electronic structure calculations provide an averaged band gap of 1.674 eV, which is in excellent agreement...
Numerical modeling of exciton impact in two crystalographic phases of the organo-lead halide perovskite (CH3NH3PbI3) solar cellPublication
To improve the power conversion efficiency of solar cells based on organo–lead halide perovskites, a detailed understanding of the device physics is fundamental. Here, a computational analysis of excitons impact is reported for these types of photocell. Numerical calculations based on the model, which take into account electronic charge carriers (electrons and holes), excitons and ions, have been carried out. The role of excitons...
Influence of excitons interaction with charge carriers on photovoltaic parameters in organic solar cellsPublication
We report on theoretical analysis of excitons annihilation on charge carriers in organic solar cells. Numerical calculations based on transient one-dimensional drift-diffusion model have been carried out. An impact of three quantities (an annihilation rate constant, an exciton mobility and a recombination reduction factor) on current density and concentrations of charge carriers and excitons is investigated. Finally, we discuss...
The domination of ionic conductivity in tetragonal phase of the organometal halide perovskite CH3NH3PbI3-xClxPublication
Organometal trihalide perovskites have recently gained extreme attention due to their high solar energy conversion in photovoltaic cells. Here, we investigate the contribution of iodide ions to a total conductivity of the mixed lead halide perovskite CH3NH3PbI3−xClx with a use of the modified DC Hebb–Wagner polarization method. It has been identified that an ionic conductivity dominates in tetragonal phase which is associated with room...
Modeling of Transient Photocurrent in Organic Semiconductors Incorporating the Annihilation of Excitons on Charge CarriersPublication
The role of the annihilation of excitons on charge carriers has been theoretically investigated in organic semiconductors. We have developed the numerical drift-diffusion model by incorporation terms which describe the annihilation process. The transient photocurrent has been calculated for different injection barrier heights, exciton mobilities, and annihilation rate constants. We have demonstrated that the annihilation has a...
