Wide bandgap perovskites are being widely studied in view of their potential applications in tandem devices and other semitransparent photovoltaics. Vacuum deposition of perovskite thin films is advantageous as it allows the fabrication of multilayer devices, fine control over thickness and purity, and it can be upscaled to meet production needs. However, the vacuum processing of multicomponent perovskites (typically used to achieve wide bandgaps) is not straightforward, because one needs to simultaneously control several thermal sources during the deposition. Here a simplified dual-source vacuum deposition method to obtain wide bandgap perovskite films is shown. The solar cells obtained with these materials have similar or even larger efficiency as those including multiple A-cations, but are much more thermally stable, up to 3500 h at 85 °C for a perovskite with a bandgap of 1.64 eV. With optimized thickness, record efficiency of >19% and semitransparent devices with stabilized power output in excess of 17% are achieved.
