Over the past few years, perovskites are gaining more interest in the field of solar cell. Perovskites are versatile and have low starting compound cost. Studies have shown that perovskites have achieved a power conversion efficiency of over 20% recently and might ultimately surpass silicon for solar cell application. However, perovskite solar cells are found to have shorter cell lifetimes in the outdoors compared to silicon solar cells. Most of the past studies on perovskite solar cells are mainly on organic-inorganic hybrid halide perovskites and little research has been done on inorganic perovskite solar cells. In a recent study, inorganic perovskites are found to be more thermally stable compared to the organic-inorganic hybrid perovskites. Therefore, this project will focus on fabricating an inorganic perovskite solar cell device. The characteristics of the fabricated inorganic perovskite cell device such as the I-V characteristics will be examined.
