The interest in perovskite-based solar cell absorber materials has skyrocketed in recent years due to the rapid rise in solar cell efficiency and the potential for cost reductions tied to solution-processed device fabrication. Due to complications associated with the presence of strong static and dynamic disorder in these organic-inorganic materials, the fundamental photophysical behavior of photo-excited charge carriers remains unclear. We apply four-wave mixing spectroscopy to study the charge carrier dynamics in CH3NH3PbI3 thin films. Our experiments reveal two discrete optical transitions below the band gap of the semiconductor with binding energies of 13 meV and 29 meV, attributed to free and defect-bound excitons respectively.
