Workshop 2: Perovskite optoelectronics & solar cells

Hybrid perovskite materials are currently under the spotlight as promising materials for new generation low-cost, high-efficiency optoelectronic devices. Nowadays, perovskite solar cells have demonstrated comparable performance with Si solar cells, but there are still bottlenecks mainly on stability and toxicity issues. In this context, hybrid perovskite optoelectronics present fascinating opportunities for scientific research and technological development

The objective of this workshop is to gather scientists and engineers to discuss recent progresses, challenges, and future directions for perovskite photovoltaic and optoelectronic devices. In particular, the workshop will focus on the recent advances in the fields of perovskite solar cells, light-emitting diodes, lasers, and optical devices. Special attention will be paid to hysteresis, ion migration, toxicity, and most importantly long-term device stability. Also, the workshop will focus on the photophysical properties of the perovskite films and on theoretical modelling in order to get an insight for further  efficiency and stability enhancement.

The Workshop topics include:
  • Perovskite synthesis processes with high reproducibility
  • Design and synthesis of lead free perovskites
  • Perovskite solar cells
  • Perovskite lasers and light emitting diodes
  • Fundamental physics, photophysics and spectroscopy
  • Theoretical modelling of materials and devices
  • Lifetime and device stability
  • Advanced photonic processes in perovskite technologies
  • Scale up and commercial development
