Molecular Nanographenematerials for Perovskite Photovoltaics: Charge Transporting Materials Molecular Design Toward Efficient and Stable Solar Cells

In the last five years, the rise of halide perovskite photovoltaics is one of the most impressive evolutions in the history of photovoltaic technologies with greater than 25% of their power conversion efficiency (PCE). Interestingly, these devices can also efficiently operate under low intensity and diffuse light. Thus, it is apparent that perovskite-based solar cells (PSCs), is the future of the next generation PV technologies suitable for both either indoor or outdoor applications, power IoT devices, etc.

The triumph of PSCs lies in unlimited possibility to design excellent and selective perovskite light absorption and long charge-carrier diffusion length of organic materials. Importantly, these solar cells are prepared by soft techniques using solution processing. Therefore, the cost-effective large-scale production is realizable. In this context, production cost, device performance and stability, leading to durability and long product’s life, are considered as the key performance parameters. Despite of important progress in term of device performance, the long-term stability of targeted technology needs to be further ameliorated.

Among different solutions at this respect, we propose herein the development of molecules .This could be possible thank to excellent electronic properties of structurally well-defined molecules which will be precisely synthetized. This interdisciplinary cover from chemistry (theoretical modelling, organic synthesis) to materials science (thin film characterization) and physics of optoelectronic devices (solar cells fabrication/investigation). The project cross from basic physical sciences to renewable energy.
