Dataset for Enhancing the hydrophobicity of perovskite solar cells using C18 capped CH3NH3PbI3 nanocrystals

The incorporation of C18 capped CH3NH3PbI3 nanocrystals (MAPI NCs) in perovskite solar cells is investigated. The efficiciency of the devices is measured through JV scans. Both reverse and forward scans are measured. The materials with and without MAPI NCs have been characterised and compared through UV-Vis absorption, XRD, cyclic voltammetry, SEM and AFM imaging. The hydrophobic properties of the films have been investigated using water contact angle measuremnets of the surface. Solar cells with over 10% efficiency are achieved on both standard and inverted architectures. Most importantly, the hydrophobicity of the perovskite surface is highly enhanced leading to a much higher device stability towards moisture.

Coverage

Collection date(s):

From 1 August 2017 to 1 February 2018

Documentation

Data collection method:

Data have been all collected at the University of Bath. Different techniques have been used: AFM (atomic force microscopy), Contact angles measurements, J-V (density–voltage) scans, PL (polarised light microscopy), UV-Vis, SEM (scanning electron microscopy), XRD (X-ray diffraction). All the data have been collected on multiple samples in order to perform a full conventional error analysis.

Data processing and preparation activities:

Data have been processed all in the same experimental conditions and each characterisation setup has been properly calibrated before each measurement.

Technical details and requirements:

Power conversion efficiency of solar cells has been measured using 1 Sun AM 1.5G reference spectrum.
