Metal halide perovskites (MHPs) are an emerging class of low-cost multifunctional semiconductor materials. They have been widely used in optoelectronic devices such as perovskite solar cells (PSCs), light-emitting diodes (LEDs), photodetectors, memristors, and lasers. However, perovskite materials are particularly sensitive to factors such as temperature, oxygen and moisture in the air, and the short service life caused by poor stability greatly limits their industrial application. At present, the development of new metal halide perovskite materials, passivation of defects, optimization of device structure, and good packaging are effective methods to improve the optoelectronic performance and stability of perovskite devices. In addition, the preparation of perovskite/perovskite heterostructures (PPHSs) can not only achieve passivation of perovskite material defects, tune the band gap, but also optimize the carrier transport mode for various semiconductor applications. Therefore, the preparation of perovskite/perovskite heterostructures is a novel and reliable method to obtain stable and excellent perovskite devices.

Since the respective advantages of two or more metal halide perovskite materials can be synthesized, perovskite heterostructures have received extensive attention from researchers. The research shows that the construction of perovskite / perovskite heterostructure can effectively improve the carrier migration of perovskite photoelectric functional devices, adjust the electron phonon coupling, significantly improving the environmental stability of the devices, greatly improving the possibility of industrial application of perovskite photoelectric functional devices. Therefore, summarizing and discussing the preparation strategies and development status of perovskite heterostructures is of great significance for the application of such composite structural materials with excellent optoelectronic properties. This article reviews the preparation strategies and optoelectronic applications of perovskite heterostructures in recent years. This paper focuses on the introduction of different morphologies (thin films and single crystals) and dimensions (2D/3D, 2D/2D, 3D/3D, 1D/3D, 0d/3D) and the preparation strategies of perovskite heterostructures, and summarizes the important applications and latest progress of perovskite heterostructures in solar cells, LEDs, photodetectors and lasers in recent years. Finally, the challenges faced in the preparation and application of perovskite heterostructures were summarized, and the future development prospects of perovskite heterostructures in optoelectronic functional devices were described.
