Abstract: Inorganic perovskite based solar cells (PSCs) have been receiving unprecedented attention worldwide in the past several years due to their higher intrinsic stability towards high temperatures and high theoretical power conversion efficiencies. Since a photovoltaic performance of 20.37% has been achieved for inorganic PSCs recently, the operational stability of these devices has become the major bottleneck which impedes their commercialization. The high thermal stability associated with inorganic perovskites comes along with poorer phase stability compared to their hybrid counterparts and therefore needs thorough understanding. Lattice strain and vacancies within the perovskite crystals are found to be the origin of these phase instability issues. This review summarizes the progress in stability research on inorganic perovskites. Specifically, the degradation mechanisms of inorganic perovskites towards temperature, moisture and oxygen are summarized and discussed. Solutions for tackling these stability issues are reviewed and an outlook on further strategies is provided.
