Kronik, Leeor Snarski, Lior The pursuit of stability in halide perovskites : the monovalent cation and the key for surface and bulk self-healing Kronik, Leeor Cahen, David Ceratti, Davide R. Jasti, Naga P. Cohen, A. V. 2022-06-15T13:32:09Z We find significant differences between degradation and healing at the surface or in the bulk for each of the different APbBr<sub>3</sub> single crystals (A = CH<sub>3</sub>NH<sub>3</sub><sup>+</sup>, methylammonium (MA); HC(NH2)2<sup>+</sup>, formamidinium (FA); and cesium, Cs+). Using 1- and 2-photon microscopy and photobleaching we conclude that kinetics dominate the surface and thermodynamics the bulk stability. Fluorescence-lifetime imaging microscopy, as well as results from several other methods, relate the (damaged) state of the halide perovskite (HaP) after photobleaching to its modified optical and electronic properties. The A cation type strongly influences both the kinetics and the thermodynamics of recovery and degradation: FA heals best the bulk material with faster self-healing; Cs<sup>+</sup> protects the surface best, being the least volatile of the A cations and possibly through O-passivation; MA passivates defects via methylamine from photo-dissociation, which binds to Pb<sup>2+</sup>. DFT simulations provide insight into the passivating role of MA, and also indicate the importance of the Br<sub>3</sub><sup>-</sup> defect as well as predicts its stability. The occurrence and rate of self-healing are suggested to explain the low effective defect density in the HaPs and through this, their excellent performance. These results rationalize the use of mixed A-cation materials for optimizing both solar cell stability and overall performance of HaP-based devices, and provide a basis for designing new HaP variants.
