In this work, we report a comparative study of the gamma ray stability of perovskite

solar cells based on a series of perovskite absorbers including MAPbI3 (MA =

methylammonium), MAPbBr3, Cs0.15FA0.85PbI3 (FA = formamidinim),

Cs0.1MA0.15FA0.75PbI3, CsPbI3, and CsPbBr3. We reveal that the composition of the

perovskite material strongly affects the radiation stability of the solar cells. In particular,

solar cells based on the MAPbI3 were found to be the most resistant to gamma rays since

this perovskite undergoes rapid self-healing due to the special gas-phase chemistry

analyzed with ab initio calculations. The fact that the solar cells based on MAPbI3 can

withstand 1000 kRad gamma ray dose without any noticeable degradation of the

photovoltaic properties) is particularly exciting and shifts the paradigm of research in this

field towards designing more dynamic rather than intrinsically robust (e.g. inorganic)
