As an alternative to the traditional blend casting method, a novel heterojunction doping approach is developed to dope hole extraction layers (HELs) for greatly boosting the efficiency of charge carrier collection in perovskite solar cells (PSCs). The HELs are prepared by sequential deposition of Cs-doped VOx and poly­(triarylamine) (PTAA) thin films, and extensive heterojunction doping is observed in the contact interface between the two thin films due to the presence of electron transfer from PTAA to Cs-doped VOx. The interfacial doping in the Cs-doped VOx/PTAA HELs enhances their conductivity and improves their energy level alignment. These increase VOC, JSC, FF, and power conversion efficiency (PCE) in PSCs compared to those in the PSCs with the use of Cs-doped VOx and PTAA separately.
