About this Research Topic
“Perovskite” represents a class of materials which have the composition ABX3 and exhibit the crystal structure of CaTiO3. This class of materials has applications in many fields. Recently, halide perovskites have drawn global attention from scientists and engineers due to the inherent properties of this class of materials, such as high absorption coefficients, tunable bandgaps, low exciton binding energy, long carrier diffusion lengths, and high carrier mobilities, etc. resulting in their significant potential for applications in optoelectronics, particularly in photovoltaics.
Today, halide perovskites have become a focal point of research for materials characterization and applications in optoelectronic and electronic devices. Successful commercialization of the devices demands a further understanding of the underlying physics, enhancing of the device stability and performance, and removal of harmful elements (such as lead) in the material system.
This Research Topic calls for the submission of articles on “Advances in Perovskite Materials for Optoelectronic Applications” The focus will be placed on the recent development in material properties, device structures, fabrication techniques, material stability and device lifetimes towards commercialization. Areas to be covered in this Research Topic may include, but are not limited to:
• Perovskite devices and physics for optoelectronic applications;
• Studies on phenomena of perovskite materials and optoelectronic devices;
• Growth and fabrication techniques for perovskite materials and optoelectronic devices;
• Mechanism of perovskite degradation and stability improvement;
• Advanced characterizations for perovskite materials and optoelectronic devices;
• Manufacturing issues of perovskite-based optoelectronic devices.
