Two-Step Processing With Vapor Treatment Of Thin Films Of Organic-Inorganic Perovskite Materials

Professor Yang and colleagues have developed a method of preparing organic-inorganic thin films using a solution process followed by a vapor treatment, instead of the standard costly vacuum deposition methods. This process maintains properties similar to perovskite materials-based electronics fabricated using vacuum deposition methods, while offering the low cost and flexibility of solution processing. Applications of this technology include lasers, photovoltaics, LEDs, field-effect transistors and superconductors.

Abstract

Prof. Yang and colleagues have developed a novel method of preparing organic-inorganic thin films using a solution process followed by vapor treatment, presenting a low-cost, high-performance solution method of producing optoelectronic devices.
