The power of perovskites

Summary

Metal halide perovskites have attracted global research attention in the last decade. While their application for solar is promising being the fastest advancing PV technology with many start-ups commercialising the technology now, have we fully capitalised on the amazing properties metal halide perovskites for other high-performance optoelectronics devices that have different cost structure and stability requirements? Join Anita Ho-Baillie's group and explore the use of this amazing material for IR LED's, UV LED's, nanowire lasers, memristors useful for telecommunications, sterilization, on-chip devices and neural networks. The new science and new applications that will be explored and demonstrated will provide students with exciting opportunities to tackle challenging problems creating new inventions.
