The interest in organometal trihalide Pb perovskite (CH3NH3PbI3)-based solar cells has increased more and more in recent years because of the high efficiencies achieved, with a record of over 22% [1], and the simple low temperature preparation method. The high efficiency was thought to mainly originate from the strong optical absorption over a broader range (up to 800 nm for Pb ), low Urbach energy due to low defect states, and longer lifetimes of photoexcited charge carriers of the organometal trihalide Pb perovskite absorbers. Further improvements in the photovoltaic performance can be obtained by increasing the light harvesting in the NIR region up to 1000 nm by using Sn/Pb cocktail halide based perovskite materials [2]. On the other hand, a good understanding of the key factors governing the photovoltaic performance of the Pb and Sn/Pb perovskite solar cells, especially photoexcited carrier dynamics, is very vital for uncovering the mechanism of achieving high efficiency. In this presentation, we would like to focus on the photoexcited carrier dynamics of Pb and Sn/Pb perovskite solar cells, including photoexcited carrier lifetime, charge separation and recombination dynamics at the interfaces of electron transport material/perovskite and hole transport material/perovskite, and the relationships between these dynamics and the photovoltaic properties. The mechanism for improving the energy conversion efficiency of the perovskite solar cells by means of interface engineering will be discussed [3-7].
