Title: Intercalation Crystallization of Phase-Pure ..alpha..-HC(NH2)2PbI3 upon Microstructurally Engineered PbI2 Thin Films for Planar Perovskite Solar Cells

The microstructure of the solid-PbI2 precursor thin film plays an important role in the intercalation crystallization of the formamidinium lead triiodide perovskite (..alpa..-HC(NH2)2PbI3). It is shown that microstructurally engineered PbI2 thin films with porosity and low crystallinity are the most favorable for conversion into uniform-coverage, phase-pure ..alpha..-HC(NH2)2PbI3 perovskite thin films. Planar perovskite solar cells fabricated using these thin films deliver power conversion efficiency (PCE) up to 13.8%.
