Abstract

The large tolerance of hybrid perovksites to the trapping of electrons by defects is a key asset in photovoltaic applications. Here, the ionic surface terminations of CH3NH3PbI3 are employed as a testbed to study the effect of electrostatic fields on the dynamics of excited carriers. We characterize the transition across the tetragonal to orthorhombic phase. The observed type II band offset and drift of the excited electrons highlight the important role that organic cations have on the screening of local electrostatic fields. When the orientation of organic cations is frozen in the orthorhombic phase, the positively charged termination induces a massive accumulation of excited electrons at the surface of the sample. Conversely, no electron accumulation is observed in the tetragonal phase. We conclude that the local fields cannot penetrate in the sample when the polarizability of freely moving cations boosts the dielectric constant up to ϵ = 120.
