Organic-inorganic hybrid film using conjugated materials and quantum dots (QDs) are of great interest for solution-processed optoelectronic devices, including photovoltaics (PVs). However, it is still challenging to fabricate conductive hybrid films to maximize their PV performance. Herein, for the first time, superior PV performance of hybrid solar cells consisting of CsPbI3 perovskite QDs and Y6 series non-fullerene molecules is demonstrated and further highlights their importance on hybrid device design. In specific, a hybrid active layer is developed using CsPbI3 QDs and non-fullerene molecules, enabling a type-II energy alignment for efficient charge transfer and extraction. Additionally, the non-fullerene molecules can well passivate the QDs, reducing surface defects and energetic disorder. The champion CsPbI3 QD/Y6-F hybrid device has a record-high efficiency of 15.05% for QD/organic hybrid PV devices, paving a new way to construct solution-processable hybrid film for efficient optoelectronic devices.
