Perovskite has been adopted as photosensitizer to develop solid state p-type mesoporous nickel oxide (NiO) dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs) employing PCBM as electron conductor. The optimal device achieved an efficiency of 1.5% with an impressive open circuit voltage of more than 800 mV, which is the record of solar cell based on p-type mesoporous NiO electrode. This result shows the potential for building highly efficient p-type NiO solar cells as stand-alone device.
