Constructive molecular configurations for surface-defect passivation of perovskite photovoltaics
Surface trap–mediated nonradiative charge recombination is a major limit to achieving high-efficiency metal-halide perovskite photovoltaics. The ionic character of perovskite lattice has enabled molecular defect passivation approaches through interaction between functional groups and defects. However, a lack of in-depth understanding of how the molecular configuration influences the passivation effectiveness is a challenge to rational molecule design. Here, the chemical environment of a functional group that is activated for defect passivation was systematically investigated with theophylline, caffeine, and theobromi...

Efficient, stable solar cells by using inherent bandgap of {alpha}-phase formamidinium lead iodide
In general, mixed cations and anions containing formamidinium (FA), methylammonium (MA), caesium, iodine, and bromine ions are used to stabilize the black α-phase of the FA-based lead triiodide (FAPbI3) in perovskite solar cells. However, additives such as MA, caesium, and bromine widen its bandgap and reduce the thermal stability. We stabilized the α-FAPbI3 phase by doping with methylenediammonium dichloride (MDACl2) and achieved a certified short-circuit current density of between 26.1 and 26.7 milliamperes per square centimeter. With certified power conversion efficiencies (PCEs) of 23.7%, more than 90% of t...

Iodine supplementation in pregnancy – international recommendations and the evidence base
This 60 minute webinar, by Dr Sarah Bath from the University of Surrey, will cover the role of iodine supplements, rather than diet, in meeting recommendations during pregnancy. It is well known that adequate iodine intake is essential in pregnancy for correct brain development, but the role of iodine supplements is less clear. In some countries there are official recommendations for women to take iodine-containing supplements during pregnancy, but that is not the case in many countries (including in the UK). The webinar will cover the variation in international policies on iodine supplementation and will review the curren...

The electronic character of photoexcited molecules can abruptly change at avoided crossings and conical intersections. Here, we report direct mapping of the coupled interplay between electrons and nuclei in a prototype molecule, iodine monobromide (IBr), by using attosecond transient absorption spectroscopy. A few-femtosecond visible pulse resonantly excites the , Y(0+), and Z(0+) states of IBr, and the photodissociation dynamics are tracked with an attosecond extreme-ultraviolet pulse that simultaneously probes the I-4d and Br-3d core-level absorption edges.

The components with soft nature in the metal halide perovskite absorber usually generate lead (Pb)0 and iodine (I)0 defects during device fabrication and operation. These defects serve as not only recombination centers to deteriorate device efficiency but also degradation initiators to hamper device lifetimes. We show that the europium ion pair Eu3+-Eu2+ acts as the "redox shuttle" that selectively oxidized Pb0 and reduced I0 defects simultaneously in a cyclical transition. The resultant device achieves a power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 21.52% (certified 20.52%) with substantially improved long-term durabili...
