Detecting gamma rays with giant perovskite crystals

Gamma ray detection is challenging at the best of times.

The process of detecting gamma rays causes serious damage to those detectors. Researchers have developed a large, self-healing crystal that might help to solve this problem. Gamma rays are the highest energy members of the electromagnetic spectrum. They also have the smallest wavelength, which means that they are quite difficult to detect. A gamma ray […]

Ionic defect landscape in perovskite solar cells revealed — ScienceDaily

The group of so-called metal halide perovskites as materials has revolutionized the field of photovoltaics in recent years. Generally speaking, metal halide perovskites are crystalline materials that follow the structure ABX3, with varying composition. Here, A, B, and X can represent a combination of different organic and inorganic ions. These materials have a number of […]

Highly uniform perovskite artificial synapses for reservoir computing

Minimizing the variability between individual artificial synapses is a key step toward rolling them out for practical applications. Since early this decade when the rapid development and advancement of artificial intelligence (AI) was launched, researchers and scientists have been seeking alternative computing paradigms (substitutes for power-hungry, transistor-based computing systems), so as to achieve the goal […]

Perovskite tandem solar cells — ScienceDaily

Scientists from the University of Surrey have revealed the significant improvements they are making in perovskite-based solar cells. Perovskite solar cells have shown significant potential in reaching the efficiency limit of the widely used solar cells currently on the market by absorbing light in a broader range of wavelengths. Industry has also been paying close […]
