Metal-halide perovskites (MHPs) are a class of materials that have gained significant attention due to their exceptional performance in a variety of applications, including solar cells and light-emitting diodes (LEDs). These materials have a general formula of ABX3, where X– is an anion that is bonded to both A+ and B2+ cations. Our research involves the study of both bulk perovskite materials and perovskite nanocrystals (PNCs). Our focus is on improving the efficiency of exciton generation in bulk perovskite materials for use in solar cells, and eliminating carrier recombination pathways. Additionally, we are interested in enhancing charge transport between PNCs through the use of virtual screening to identify ligands with extended π-conjugation that can replace the native insulating ligands on the PNCs.
