In solution-processed organic and inorganic halide perovskite solar cells (PSCs), managing the interfacial characteristics between multi-layers has been a crucial factor in determining their performance and stability. Here, we newly design an indolocarbazole-based organic molecule that can enhance the interfacial properties between a solution-processed NiOx hole transport layer and perovskite in p-i-n planar PSC. Especially, to be beneficial to this architecture, its visible transparency and energy level are optimized, and its chemical structure is crosslinked for better solution processability as a hole-selective interlayer. More importantly, it can passivate the defects in the perovskite film, consequently enhancing the quality of the film and suppressing non-radiative recombination in the devices. With this interface modification, we confirm that the performance and stability of PSC devices are largely enhanced.
