Abstract

​This work shows that vacuum decreases operational lifetime of perovskite solarcells (ITO/SnO2/perovskite/Spiro-MeOTAD/Au) by accelerating perovskitedecomposition starting from the grain boundaries, accompanied by outgassingand defect formation. These defects further accelerate ion migration (Li+,Au+and/or Au3+,I,andBr) across the device. We propose a robust perovskite solar cellstructure (ITO/PTAA/perovskite/PCBM/ZnO/AZO/[Ni/Algrid]) that effectivelymitigates these degradation pathways, leading to a device showing a projectedT80lifetime of 4,750 h at its maximum power point condition, 1-sun illumination at50 mbar.
