In organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite solar cells, optimization of hole transport materials (HTMs) is important for enhancing solar power conversion efficiency and improving stability. At OIST, a team of researchers in the Energy Materials and Surface Sciences Unit has been making concerted efforts to study 2,2’,7,7’-tetrakis[N,N-di-(4-methoxyphenyl)amino]-9,9’-spirobifluorene (spiro-MeOTAD), which is the most widely used HTM in perovskite solar cells [1-7]. In this talk, we will present our latest understanding of fundamental interactions between Li-bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)-imide (LiTFSI), 4-tert-butylpyridine (t-BP) and spiro-MeOTAD. We will also show how gas exposure (e.g., exposure to O2, H2O, N2) influences electronic structures and conductivity of such HTM films. In addition, we will propose further strategies to improve perovskite solar cell performance and stability [4,6].
