Hybrid organic inorganic halide perovskite (HOIP) materials are growing in research interest across the world, thanks to the particular success of lead halide perovskite photovoltaic devices. There is more to this material than just photovoltaic applications, though, as the ability to match organic cations with complex inorganic anions means that tuning of both the organic and inorganic parts is possible. It is this tuning of material properties by changing the identities of each ion in a typical ABX3 based perovskite structure (where A = an organic cation, B = a metal polycation, and X = an anionic halide or pseudohalide ligand) that holds promise for novel materials development.
Understanding how varying each of the ions affects aspects of material properties is crucial to understanding how and when to best apply specific materials. By better understanding the halide perovskite fundamental properties and how those properties change with ion identity, one can generate design rules for state-of-the-art materials. This opens the door to a broad range of material functionalities.
This special issue should contain a scope that contains the following topics:
- 0-D, 1-D, 2-D material synthesis and structure
- Optoelectronic properties of low-D HOIPs
- Ferroelectric HOIPs
- Photodetectors and scintillators using low-D HOIPs
- Low-dimensional Photovoltaics
- Perovskite photocatalysts
- Multi-component HOIP materials
- Magnetic properties of low-dimensional HOIPs
Aron received a Bachelor’s in Chemistry from Murray State University in 2011 before starting PhD studies at The University of Mississippi. There, he practiced organic and organometallic chemistry under the supervision of Prof. T. Keith Hollis and Prof. Jared Delcamp. Directly after finishing his graduate studies, he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne under the supervision of Prof. M. K. Nazeeruddin, where he practiced material design for organic light emitting diodes and perovskite solar cells.
From January 2020: Aron began leading an independent research group at the University of Kentucky focusing on hybrid organic inorganic materials and organic chemistry research.
