ABSTRACT: In past several years, materials called halide perovskites have been reshaping researchers’ understanding on designing and developing high-performance optoelectronic/electro-optical semiconductors. In this talk, I will present our recent observations and understanding in the field of halide perovskite materials. Several topics will be covered: van der Waals and ionic epitaxy of the thin film and nanocrystals, dimensionality and strain engineering via strongly correlated materials, and hidden carrier dynamics.
BIOGRAPHY: Dr. Jian Shi is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
