High performance hybrid organic inorganic perovskite based solar cells have emerged as strong candidate for future photovoltaic devices due to their good band gap tunability, longer diffusion length and high absorption in visible and near-UV region. High quality hybrid halide films play a key role for high efficiency perovskite solar cells as it could function as both light absorber and transporting electronic charge carrier. Sequential deposition method to produce high-quality perovskite film and characterization via SEM and UV-VIS spectroscopy has been reported here.
