Thermally stimulated current measurements have been performed on polycrystalline layers of lead iodide grown from solution. Several TSC peaks or bands have been observed at temperatures of 100 K, 195–220 K, 230–240 K and 270–300 K. Comparison with PbI2 single crystal shows that the polycrystalline structure of the material introduces additional defects. In contrast the defect currently found in single crystal and attributed to the lead vacancy has not been clearly evidenced in the polycrystalline layers. The position and relative intensity of the peaks can be modified by Ag doping and thermal annealing. On the other hand, only small differences resulting from the anisotropy of the material have been observed depending on the orientation of the electric field with regards to the grains orientation.
