Congratulations to Hans and Allard

Congratulations to our bachelor students Hans and Allard for their successfully completion of  their bachelor end projects. Hans worked on the DFT study on the reactivities of perovskite precursors with electron transport layer SnO2 and he has gained important...
Theory of phase separation

Theory of phase separation

With the tunability of perovskites through compositional alloying being one of their most attractive properties, the photoinstability arising from the mixing is a very serious drawback. Specifically, in mixed halide perovskites a light induced halide segregation is...

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)...

Three preprints in a week!

This week, Haibo, Vicent and Mike have published three preprints on their recent results on studying halide perovskites, using DFT, DFTB and ReaxFF, respectively. These results provide an important basis for a comprehensive multiscale computational framework, that is...
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...
