New record in lead-free halide double perovskites

Illumination consumes more than 20 percent of electricity. Thus, finding an efficient, stable, single-phase warm white-light material is very important. Lead hybrid perovskites have drawn interest for excellent photoelectric ...

Efficient light conversion with perovskite nanocrystals

Perovskites are a family of crystals that show promising properties for applications in nanotechnology. However, a property called carrier multiplication, an effect that makes materials much more efficient in converting light ...

Surface engineering gets the red light

Perovskite particles could improve the performance of solar cells and light-emitting diodes via a simple process to stabilize the nanocrystal surface.

Quantum-emitting answer might lie in the solution

Tapping into the quantum properties of photons for optoelectronics requires highly efficient light sources. Lead trihalide perovskite nanocrystals exhibit a number of properties that make them promising candidates as light ...
