Perovskite crystals could beat graphene

Posted on Tuesday, August 09 2016 @ 12:46:02 CEST by

Research suggests graphene is no longer the only material that could breathe new life in the chip market when silicon hits its limits in the near-future. Researchers funded by the US Department of Energy (DoE) discovered that perovskites, a popular photovoltaic material, can rival graphene when grown in hybrid monolayers one atom thin, while also being easier to grow. Full details at EE Times.
A popular photovoltaic material called "perovskites" can rival graphene when grown in hybrid monolayers one atom thin, according to Department of Energy (DoE) funded researchers. This high energy material is easier to grow than graphene and can be doped to make the various varieties of ionic semiconductors needed to beat other two-dimensional (2-D) materials with tunable electronic/photonic properties.

"The high-quality 2D crystals exhibit efficient photoluminescence, and color tuning could be achieved by changing sheet thickness as well as composition via the synthesis of related materials," the researchers said in Science.
