Perovskite materials have become very promising candidates for a new generation of potentially printable and efficient optoelectronic devices. As of 2017, innovative preparation methods give access to ever higher material quality and tunability; perovskite-based photovoltaics research is now moving beyond pure efficiency improvements and is exploring scale-up, tandems and stability issues; and applications in light emission and detection continue to soar, thanks to a deeper understanding of the perovskites intriguing physical properties.
This web-collection brings together an editorially-curated selection of multi-disciplinary research articles published in the Nature journals that explore the basic properties of halide-based perovskite materials and their potential for application in optoelectronics, from solar cells to lasers.
In addition to Research Articles, the collection gathers Comments and selected News and Views published since January 2015 in the News and comments section and Perspectives and Review articles under Reviews. Historical milestones on the synthesis and characterization of hybrid organic-inorganic metal halide perovskites and their use in applications are reported in the Milestones section.
This collection was initially published online in September 2016, and was updated in September 2017.
