Love your Imperfections

At the onset of this blog, I interviewed Prof Aron Walsh about control defects within halide perovskites. The conclusion was that because charge carriers within this material behave as if there were no defects, doping the structure (i.e. adding some positively or negatively charged imperfections in the lattice) have no effect on the electrical properties. […]

What happened in January?

The perovskite field has been subject to an incredible momentum and is moving forward very fast. Here is a selection of interesting papers published in January. Editorial: Perovskite photovoltaics is 10 years old In 2009, Tsutomu Miyasaka published in JACS a paper reporting halide perovskite as a DSSC sensitizer. The editorial of Nature Energy in […]
