Perovskite semiconductor materials are at the forefront of research for various novel applications. Their performance has been demonstrated in all dimensions from 0D through to 3D. Amongst these, 2D organic-inorganic are the easiest form of perovskites and show many promising properties for a wide range of exciting applications such as in as solar cells, photodetectors, light emitting diodes (LEDs) and lasers . For best device performance in these applications, the 2D perovskites need to be applied in thin (less than 10 nm) and high-quality large area crystalline films, which is still a challenge. In this project you will fabricate very thin centimeter-scale highly crystalline films via chemical vapor deposition (CVD), and then utilize the fabricated materials in a variety of devices such as FETs, LEDs, photo detectors, sensors and solar cells. This is a 12-credit project and suits Honours/Masters students.
