This paper presents a study of the photoluminescence properties of hybrid perovskite films deposited on titanium and magnesium zinc oxide films, as electron transport layers, using the spin-coating technique. The subject of the investigation was continuous wave photoluminescence versus temperature, excitation power and transient photoluminescence. Moreover, the paper discusses possible carrier recombination mechanisms. Complex temporal decay was approximated through the use of several models, but only the four-exponent model and the model using the sum of two hyperbolic functions provided a good agreement with the experimental data. The first attempt to replace titanium dioxide with magnesium zinc oxide in conjunction with the perovskite layer showed improved optical properties such as a weaker non-radiative recombination process and a longer decay time constant.
