Hybrid perovskites are one of the most promising materials for low-cost and high-efficiency photovoltaic technologies. However, the understanding of their physical properties has lagged behind the impressive improvement of power-conversion efficiency (>20%). In my presentation I will report about the optical properties of FAPbI3 perovskite films based on different precursor systems. Exciton binding energies of 8.1 meV for the high temperature phase and 18 meV for the low temperature phase are extracted. At room temperature, we found the lifetimes to vary from tens to hundreds nanoseconds. FAPbI3 film made from the new precursor, exhibits the longest lifetime of 439 ns, suggesting a lower number of defects and lower non-radiative recombination losses compared with FAPbI3 obtained with the other two precursors set. From the low temperature data we estimated the exciton-optical phonon-coupling coefficient to be about 35 meV, and the optical phonon energy 18 meV. This latter value is assumed to be the effective average, since the FAPbI3 lattice possesses more than one optical phonon.
