Title: Highly stable inverted methylammonium lead tri-iodide perovskite solar cells achieved by surface re-crystallization

Abstract

A long-term operational stability over 1000 hours in the inverted type perovskite solar cells based on the MAPbI3layer is demonstrated under ionic defect-free conditions.
