Symposium EL04-Metal Halide Perovskites for Applications Beyond Solar

Metal halide perovskites are by now well-established materials for optoelectronics, with power conversion efficiencies of single cell devices exceeding 25% rivaling established solar cell technologies. Halide perovskite materials exhibit exceptional properties related to their electronic and excited state structure, but also their unusual structural dynamics which have yet to be investigated in depth from experimental and theoretical perspectives A large fraction of the literature focuses on properties relevant for optoelectronic applications, while we envision a much wider scope for these materials, e.g in spintronic and electro-chemical applications. The purpose of this symposium is now to provide a platform for theorists and experimentalists working on novel materials and applications based on halide perovskites, e.g spintronics, electro-chemical charge storage, or quantum applications. We believe that interactions and exchange of ideas between theoreticians and experimentalist will now be needed and fruitful for the discovery of future directions for this technologically relevant class of materials, beyond the focus on optoelectronics. We have further observed a widening gap between experimental and theoretical efforts in the literature on halide perovskites. We will, thus, offer a workshop targeted at graduate students and emerging leaders, to discuss how state-of-the art approaches in data sharing and theory can be effectively combined with experiments, for future sustainable material discovery.

Topics will include:

  • Theoretical and experimental understanding of defects
  • Computation-driven discovery of perovskite phenomena
  • Spintronic materials and applications
  • Excitonics in lower-dimensional perovskites
  • Quantum Effects and Information Storage
  • Machine learning based accelerated characterization of perovskite materials
  • Structure-property relations of lower-dimensional perovskites
  • Emerging properties of perovskite-derived materials
  • Fundamentals of halide migration and control
  • Fundamentals and applications of (photo-)electrochemical energy storage
  • Transient charge and ionic movement under operating conditions
  • Phenomena at surfaces and interfaces
  • Epitaxial halide perovskites
  • A tutorial complementing this symposium is tentatively planned.
