Low-cost and high energy conversion efficiency are the crucial factors for large scale application of solar cells. In recent years, a promising high cost-performance photovoltaic technology, organometal halide perovskite solar cells (PSCs), has attracted great attention. However, most of the reported high efficiencies were obtained on a small working area of about 0.1 cm2 with the material utilization ratio of only 1% during film deposition, which actually hinders the advancement in future application of PSCs. Here we present the soft-cover deposition (SCD) method where surface wettability, solution viscosity and thermal crystallization are the processing key factors for the deposition of uniform perovskite films with high material utilization ratios. Scaling-up, pinhole-free, large crystal grains and rough-border-free perovskite films were obtained over a large area of 51 cm2, which were processed continuously in ambient air with a significant enhancement in the material utilization ratio up to ~80%. Unit solar cells fabricated via SCD perovskite films obtained PCEs up to 17.6% in a working area of 1 cm2 with very small hysteresis and high reproducibility. At present, we also applied this unique technology to the deposition of inorganic and organic semiconductor solution processed thin-films which serve as electron and hole transport layers in perovskite solar cell and high performance has been achieved.
