Abstract : We use electroabsorption (EA) spectroscopy to measure the exciton binding energy (EsubB), electronhole reduced effective mass (), and one-electron band gap (Eg) at the fundamental absorption edge of the hybrid organicinorganic perovskite CHsub3NHsub3PbIsub3 in its tetragonal phase at 300 K. By studying the second-harmonic EA spectra at the fundamental absorption edge we establish that the room temperature EA response in CHsub3NHsub3PbIsub3 follows the low-field FranzKeldyshAspnes (FKA) effect. Following FKA analysis we find that = 0.12 0.03msub0, EsubB = 7.4 meV, and Esubg = 1.633 eV. Our results provide direct experimental evidence that at room temperature primary transitions occurring in CHsub3NHsub3PbIsub3 can essentially be described in terms of free carrier generation.
