By introducing the negatively charged PSS- as the counter ions into PEI, the imine protonation could be tuned, leading to tunable work-function of the PEI:PSS coated ITO. The incorporation of PSS in PEI enhances the photocurrent and power conversion efficiency (PCE) of the devices, due to an improved electron extraction at the PEI:PSS-active-layer interfaces. Furthermore, a TiOx-PEI:PSS combined interfacial layer further enhances the cell performance and eliminates the need for light-soaking treatment for TiO x, owing to the improved hole-blocking and surface-state passivation in the interfacial layer. The achieved high cell performance, better stability, low-cost materials, and low-temperature solution processes of the TiO x-PEI:PSS interfacial layers demonstrate a promising cathode configuration for realizing efficient and long lifetime PSCs.
