Black Phases of CsPbI3: Structural and Theoretical Studies

Abstract : In less than 10 years, hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites have emerged as a new generation of absorber materials for high-efficiency and low-cost solar cells [1], [2]. More recently, fully inorganic perovskite quantum dots (QD) also led to promising efficiencies [3], [4] and then become a serious alternative to hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites. Currently, the record efficiency for QD solar cells is obtained with CsPbI 3. High resolution in-situ synchrotron XRD measurements have been performed on CsPbI 3 as a function of the temperature and revealed a highly anisotropic variation of the lattice parameters. Moreover, CsPbI 3 can be temporarily maintained in a perovskite-like structure down to room temperature, stabilizing a metastable perovskite polytype (black-phase) crucial for photovoltaic applications. Structural, vibrational and electronic properties of the three experimentally observed black phases are further scrutinized using theoretical approaches [5], [6]. A symmetry-based tight-binding model, calibrated with self-consistent GW calculations including spin-orbit coupling, affords further insight into their electronic properties. A Rashba effect is thus predicted for both cubic and tetragonal phases when using the symmetry breaking structures obtained through frozen phonon calculations.
