Organo-metal halide perovskites have recently emerged as a highly promising class of semiconductors for optoelectronic device applications. Integrating these hybrid materials within organic molecular thin film devices is key to fabricate functional devices. By evaporating ultra-thin films of organic semiconductor on thermally evaporated CH3NH3PbI3 and using in-situ ultraviolet photoemission spectroscopy, we directly measure the interfacial energy offset between CH3NH3PbI3 valence band maximum and the highest occupied molecular orbital for 5 different archetypal organic semiconductors. It is found that the energy offsets scale linearly as a function of the ionization energies of the organic semiconductors. The experimental data are in excellent agreement with a theoretical model for ideal semiconductorheterojunctions.
