Hybrid perovskite solar cells have attracted great attention due to high power conversion efficiency (PCE) over 20%. One of the remaining challenges is large scale fabrication of the device, which requires scalable coating methods using such as slot-dyes, coating blades, and ink-jets, alternative to spin-coating. Commonly used anti-solvent method is quite sensitive to the coating and drying conditions, thus we report here the preparation of the perovskite (precursor) inks and optimized the coating conditions.

Perovskite crystal of MAPbI3 was prepared from methylammonium iodide (MAI), lead iodide (PbI2) as a precipitate, and re-dissolved in solution as an ink by addition of methylamine (MA)/methanol vapor. Low boiling point solvents, such as acetonitrile1) and chloroform were selected. After deposition of perovskite ink on the substrate, the black perovskite layer was immediately appeared by removal of MA and solvents. Active layer thickness and the composition of perovskite layer was optimized by addition of methylammonium chloride to the perovskite ink, resulted in higher-quality perovskite layer formation, which was verified by the cross-sectional SEM-EDX analysis. The power conversion efficiency was ~16%.
