We report a new route to synthesize high-quality, large-size crystals of CH3NH3PbCl3 through proper selection of DSMO-GBL solution via solvent evaporation method at room temperature. A detailed evaluation of the structural, electronic, optical and electrical properties of these crystals was carried out. Our XPS studies suggested that organic-inorganic halide perovskites are sensitive to X-ray-induced damage, and hence, their properties may get altered. Also, photoluminescence studies displayed two peak spectra, indicating coexistence of order-disorder domains of CH3NH3 in the sample. Further observation of low defect concentration and longer diffusion length indicates that crystals grown by the presented method can offer promising solutions for optoelectronic devices.
