Abstract

The instability of lead halide perovskites in various application-related conditions is a key challenge to be resolved. We investigated the formation of metal nanoparticles during transmission electron microscopy (TEM) imaging of perovskite-related metal halide compounds. The metal nanoparticle formation on these materials originates from stimulated desorption of halogen under electron beam, and a subsequent aggregation of metal atoms. Based on shared mechanism, the TEM-based degradation test can help to evaluate the material stability against light irradiation.
