Seminar: Halide Perovskites for Solar Cells, LEDs, Lasers and more – Overview

  • Overview

Halide Perovskites in Recent Research


About the lecture

Time and place

Donnerstag, 14:30 - 16:00 Uhr, Seminar Room Königinstr. 10 (D04.007)

The seminar covers recent research highlights in perovskites,
focusing on materials, nanocrystals, applications and devices.
This seminar addresses in particular master students, who have followed the lecture:
EM1 - Advanced Solid State Physics, but is not exclusively for these students.
