[en] Perovskite compounds, used either in mesoscopic or planar solar cells, have allowed preparing highly efficient solid-state devices (>20%).

In this study, we propose to design photoanodes with photonic structure in order to modulate light interaction. The periodic structure of porosity could add specific optical properties likely to increase light harvesting and reduce reflexion losses.
Besides, current efficiencies reported for mesoscopic perovskite solar cells using an inorganic porous scaffold are slightly lower than those reported for planar perovskite cells mainly due to issues in perovskite infiltration. The control of the porous network architecture in terms of pore organization, size and connectivity could overcome this limitation.

TiO2/perovskite and perovskite-only photoanodes with an inverse opal porous structure are prepared from templating techniques, using polystyrene beads as structuring agent. The photoanode microstructure is further characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-Ray diffraction (XRD). In parallel, light interaction is modeled in order to find the best compromise in terms of photonic architecture (pore size, organization, thickness…).
