  Formamidinium lead iodide perovskite (FAPbI3; FA+ = HC(NH2)2+) single crystal with a bandgap of ~1.4 eV has attracted much attention as a new class of absorption layers of solar cell. We investigated various electrical and optical properties of FAPbI3 single crystal, which was made by inverse temperature crystallization method.

  Dark current – voltage measurement was carried out, and hole mobility and hole trap density were estimated by the space-charge-limited current technique. Temperature dependence of resistance with and without light irradiation indicated the existence of two activation energies.

  Absorption coefficient of a slice of single crystal was calculated from the transmittance and reflectance data, and optical bandgap of the inside of a crystal was estimated. On the other hand, the transmittance measurement of the powder milled from a single crystal showed a different optical bandgap. It is coincided with the results which a photo-luminescence spectrum of a single crystal showed two peaks. The origins of bandgap and activation energy will be discussed.
