A simple, cost effective production approach having high stability is pertinent to any organic-inorganic perovskite solar cells. The main focus of the present work has been to formulate and estimate the stability of CH3NH3PbBr3 micro-cubes and nanoparticles based perovskite solar cells. Firstly, novel synthesis route has been introduced for the preparation of CH3NH3Br (MABr) electrolyte salt which is less time consuming, as well as cost effective than pristine methods. We also reported a facile single solution process to grow large scale CH3NH3PbBr3 (MAPbBr(3)) hybrid perovskite micro-cubes and nano-particles. The effect of different size (micro-cube & nano-particles) of perovskite material on structural, optical, thermal stability and degradation kinetics has been examined. X-ray diffraction spectra of MAPbBr(3) perovskite reflect high crystallinity and cubic structure of the material at the room temperature. The surface morphology of micro-cubes and nano-particle MAPbBr(3) has been obtained from scanning electron microscope (SEM). Broad absorption spectrum has found in the visible region with high absorption coefficient and PL spectra show the green emission which is in good agreement with the optical band gap of MAPbBr(3) from absorption measurements. With decreasing the size of perovskite materials, band gap and emission spectra tuned towards the blue region. The simultaneous thermal analysis (STA) study indicates towards the more thermal stability of micro-cubes structures than nanoparticles material while the change in enthalpy (Delta H) and specific heat capacity (Delta Cp) of nano particle have increased by reducing the particle size of perovskite due to modification of endothermic peaks.
