Abstract

The present study has explored the electronic properties of Organic-inorganic mixed halide-based perovskites using density functional theory. The Quantum Espresso simulation package with PBE parameterization within the generalized gradient approximation (GGA) has been used in this work. The findings reveal that the addition of halogens (bromide and chlorine) to compound CH3NH3PbI3 for all the possible substituted halides may cause the shifting of energy bands in the band structure and thus change the bandgap. Hence, this calculation may be used to design perovskite solar cell material with varied electronic structure.
