Halide Perovskites for Photovoltaics and Beyond

About this Research Topic

The power conversion efficiency of the perovskite solar cell exhibited a meteoric rise over the past few years, which is approaching the theoretical efficiency limit of single-junction solar cells. This success is mainly ascribed to the unique properties of halide perovskites such as high carrier mobility, extraordinarily long carrier diffusion lengths, and tunable optical bandgaps. Inspired by this breakthrough in the solar cell area, scientists have also studied their performances in other devices such as photodetectors, light-emitting diodes, lasers, X-ray detectors, and resistive switching memories. Simultaneously, a number of preparation methods were developed to fabricate high-quality perovskite films to enhance the device performance, while various perovskite-like materials were proposed to meet the commercialization requirements, such as 2-dimensional perovskites, double perovskites, and perovskite derivatives. These investigations provide opportunities to achieve new innovations in related fields and may pave the way for the next-generation perovskite solar cell.

All article types are welcome in this Research Topic, and we particularly encourage Original Research, Review, and Perspective articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to exploit the potential applications within the perovskite community.

Areas covered in this Research Topic include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Organic-inorganic halide perovskites
- All-inorganic halide perovskites
- 0D, 1D, 2D perovskites
- Unique physical/chemical properties
- Perovskite solar cells
- Photodetectors
- Light-emitting diodes
- Lasers
- X-ray detectors
- Other applications.


Keywords: halide perovskite, solar cell, photodetector, light-emitting diode, laser


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
