Flexible semitransparent perovskite solar cells (ST-PSCs) have great potential for use in high-density energy systems, such as building or vehicle integrated photovoltaics, considering the great features of PSC devices, including high performance, light weight, thin-film processability, and high near-infrared transmittance. Despite numerous efforts toward achieving efficiency and flexibility in ST-PSCs, the realization of high-performance and operational stability in ST-PSCs still require further development. Herein, we demonstrated the development of highly efficient, stable, and flexible ST-PSCs using polyimide-integrated graphene electrodes via a lamination-assisted bifacial cation exchange strategy. A high-quality perovskite layer was obtained through the cation exchange reaction using the lamination process, and ST-PSCs with 15.1% efficiency were developed. The proposed ST-PSC device also demonstrated excellent operational stability, mechanical durability, and moisture stability owing to the chemically inert and mechanically robust graphene electrodes. This study provides an effective strategy for developing highly functional ST-perovskite optoelectronic devices with high-performance and long-term operational stability.
