New group of materialsFeng Gao, senior lecturer at IFM, was awarded a Starting Grant of EUR 1.5 million from the European Research Council in the autumn of 2016, intended for research into using perovskites in light-emitting diodes. He is now gathering leading researchers from the Nordic region and Asia so that they can spend two days sharing knowledge and exchanging experience concerning the theory and manufacture of perovskites.
Perovskites are a completely new group of semi-conducting materials, and interest from the research world has increased considerably since 2009. The perovskites that have aroused greatest interest in recent years consist of an organic substance (carbon and hydrogen), a metal and a halogen (fluorine, chlorine, bromine or iodine).
Nordic-asia workshopLiU researchers and students are welcome to participate in the workshop, which will take place in Schrödinger, E324, in the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology on 29-30 May 2017.
The programme and a registration form for the “Nordic-Asia workshop on perovskite optoelectronics” can be found here. The deadline for registration is 24 May.
