Stabilizing perovskite QDs

Stabilizing perovskite QDs

Perovskites come in all shapes and sizes and perovskite quantum dots (QDs) are one particular form with great potential. Their unique combination of characteristics leads to improved phase stability and increased theoretical photoluminescence quantum yield (PLQY)...
Reactive force field

Reactive force field

Following eleven months of hard work, Mike has successfully defended his Master thesis on the 22 of February and received mark of 9.5. During these months, Mike focused on the development of a reactive force field (ReaxFF) for metal halide perovskites, in...
Stabilizing perovskite LEDs

Stabilizing perovskite LEDs

Light emitting diodes (LEDs) are one of the many possible applications for metal halide perovskites. Despite their many advantages, the well-known instability issue persists in these devices, with the ion migration being a major cause of degradation. Inspired by the...
Understanding crystallization

Understanding crystallization

Together with our experimental collaboration Prof. Xinhui Lu (the Chinese University of Hong Kong), Haibo Xue studied the impact of the crystallization kinetics on the quality of the perovskite films. By combining in-situ X-ray scattering (GIWAXS) and DFT...
The perovskite and the sun

The perovskite and the sun

Formamidinium-cesium lead iodide (FACsPbI3), a halide compound that has become increasingly popular for use in perovskite solar cells as it combines high efficiency and reasonable heat resistance. However, solar cells made of this particular compound have a rather...
Force fields for perovskites

Force fields for perovskites

In collaboration with Juan Anta (UPO) and Sofia Calero (TU/e), Vicent has recently developed a set of classical force fields for mixed perovskites: mixed halide perovskites. This work is recently accepted for publication by Journal of Materials Chemistry A....
