With the advantages of narrow bandgap and excellent thermal stability, fomamidinium lead triiodide (FAPbI3) perovskite holds the promise to boost the power conversion efficiency (PCE) of perovskite solar cells (PSCs) to over 25%. However, such a promise is blurred by the poor structural stability of the black α-phase FAPbI3, as it can spontaneously transform into photoinactive δ-phase at room temperature and this process can be accelerated by the ambient moisture. The incorporation of small ions such as cesium (Cs+), methylammonium (MA), and bromide (Br) into the perovskite lattice is proven to be successful in stabilizing the α-phase FAPbI3; however, the resultant mixed perovskites suffer the phase segregation problem, which inevitably undermines the long-term stability of the corresponding PSCs. Therefore, continuous efforts are made to realize stable and pure-phase α-FAPbI3 perovskites. Herein, the recent progress on the development of efficient and stable FAPbI3 PSCs is summarized with a focus on the different phase stabilization strategies. In addition, the challenges and possible directions for future study are proposed.
