Science News：2021 Joule Take Perovskite’s advantage of instability
In August 2021, Joule (IF 41.248) journal published a study by Osman M. Bakr et al., giving us an overview of the halide perovskite systems of switchable optical and electrical properties as stimuli-responsive materials (SRMs) potentials as well as discuss their switching characteristics and practical applications.
Halide perovskite has the advantages of good semiconductor properties with defect tolerance and facile solution processing, making it widely used in optoelectronic applications. The author describes major advances in halide perovskite systems that can be used in a range of important technologies, such as smart (photovoltaic) windows, memory devices, data storage, and sensors.
In experiments with instruments such as solar simulators, they summarize the reversible chemical and structural transformations of these materials and categorize them by their switching mechanisms. In addition, in order to guide the community’s search for new designs of stimuli-responsive halide perovskites, several important criteria for effective switchable materials are also outlined.
