Recent discoveries have revealed a breakthrough in the field using inorganic-organic hybrid layers called perovskites as the light harvester in the solar cell. The inorganic-organic arrangement is self-assembled as alternate layers, being a simple, low cost procedure. These organic-inorganic hybrids promise several benefits not delivered by the separate constituents.

In this work we present a fully printable mesoporous indium tin oxide (ITO) perovskite solar cell. The solar cell structure consists of triple-oxide screen-printed mesoporous layers. In this structure, the perovskite is not forming a separate layer but fills the pores of the triple-oxide structure. The perovskite is utilized as both the light harvester and a hole transporting material. One of the advantageous of this solar cell structure is the transparent contact (mesoporous ITO) which permit the use of this cell structure in bifacial configuration without the need for additional layers or thinner counter electrode. We performed photovoltaic (PV) measurements on both sides (i.e. ITO-side and glass-side), where the glass side show 15.3% efficiency compare to 3.8% of the ITO-side. Further study of the mechanism shows that the dominant mechanism when illuminating from the glass-side is Shockley-Read-Hall recombination in the bulk, while illuminating from the ITO-side show recombination in multiple traps and inter gap defect distribution which explain the poor PV performance of the ITO-side. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy shed more light on the resistance and capacitance. Finally, we demonstrate 18.3% efficiency in bifacial configuration. This work shows a fully printable solar cell structure which can function in bifacial configuration.
