High specific power cost-effective thin-film tandem solar cells are desired for space applications. Metal halide perovskites have recently emerged as an ideal candidate for constructing multi-junction thin-film tandem solar cells on lightweight and flexible substrates that promise high specific powers, owing to their tunable bandgap, outstanding optical properties, and low-temperature solution processibility. Here, we report on the in-house preparation of radio-frequency magnetron sputtered indium tin oxide for both the transparent conductive electrode and the interconnecting layer of monolithically integrated all-perovskite tandem solar cells. Our proof-of-concept lightweight and flexible all-perovskite tandem solar cells deliver a stabilized power conversion efficiency of more than 20% and a specific power density of more than 870 W/kg.
