Bismuth ferrite (BiFeO3) thin films were prepared by a spin-coating method. Crystal structure and optical properties of the BiFeO3 films were evaluated using X-ray diffraction. The lattice constants, crystallite size, and energy gap of BiFeO3 films depended on the concentration of the BiFeO3 precursor solution. BiFeO3/CH3NH3PbI3 photovoltaic devices were fabricated to investigate photovoltaic properties of BiFeO3. Current density–voltage characteristics of the photovoltaic devices showed rectifying behavior, indicating that BiFeO3 worked as an electron transport layer in CH3NH3PbI3-based photovoltaic devices.
