Abstract: Surface passivation engineering of perovskite films via organic functional small molecules has emerged as an effective strategy for improving the efficiency and stability of perovskite solar cells (PSCs). However, a systematic understanding of underlying mechanisms behind these improvements is still missing. In this work, two new naphthalimide-based organic small molecules (PX, X = F, I) are designed and employed to efficiently passivate the surface defects of perovskite films in PSCs. Consequently, superior photovoltaic properties for PI-treated PSCs are achieved with a power conversion efficiency of 23.06%, which is significantly higher than that of the reference device without passivators (20.45%). Theoretical calculations reveal that PX can give rise to interfacial electrical dipole. It is found that incorporating a dipole interlayer between perovskite layer and hole transport layer can enhance ultrafast charge-carrier injection and suppress the charge-carrier recombination in device, which is illustrated by transient absorption spectroscopy. These present results can provide valuable information on the understanding interfacial charge-carrier dynamics in PSCs to further improve the device performance.
