Investigation of hybrid organic/inorganic perovskite systems and interfaces by photoelectron spectroscopy — •Selina Olthof — University of Cologne, Germany, Luxemburgerstrasse 116, 50939 Cologne
In recent years, the interest in hybrid organic - inorganic perovskites rose at a rapid pace due to their tremendous success in the field of photovoltaics. In addition to the thin film properties of the active layer, the performance of optoelectronic devices strongly depends on the appropriate energetic alignment between the active- and adjacent layers. In order to choose adequate transport materials for the increasingly complex hybrid perovskite compositions in a non-trial-and-error fashion, it is important to understand how the induced changes in band gap relate to shifts in the valence and/or conduction band.
In this talk, I will discuss recent findings regarding measurements of the electronic structure of various hybrid perovskites, covering lead as well as tin based systems and a variety of halogens using UV-, inverse, and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy measurements (UPS/IPES/XPS). Furthermore, using these surface sensitive techniques the alignment at interfaces between different layers can be probed in-situ as well by performing a stepwise film preparation. Looking at various bottom contacts we find that chemical interactions, band bending, and interface dipole formation play an important role. Therefore, the nature of the substrate not only determines the energetic alignment but can lead to chemical reactions and influence film formation and crystallinity.
