Perovskites are a class of semiconductors that are being actively researched in light of their unique physical properties. In the past decade, solar cells based on these materials have attained a commercial level of effectiveness. In a new study, researchers from ITMO have presented a prototype version of a photodetector based on carbon nanotubes and perovskites. ITMO.NEWS spoke with the authors to find out what new prospects for flexible electronics the project offers.
Scientists from ITMO University, Bauman Moscow State Technical University, and the University of Toronto have developed a gel ink that emits light when exposed to monochromatic radiation of various wavelengths. This makes it possible to create complex images when applying tags to products – the scientists believe that the level of anti-counterfeiting protection offered by their invention is much higher than that of the existing counterparts. The research received support from a Russian Science Foundation and the Ministry of Science and Higher Education grant.
An international group of scientists, including some from ITMO University, has proposed a method that allows for significantly increasing the efficiency of solar cells and light-emitting diodes. The scientists managed to achieve this result by augmenting the auxiliary layers of the devices responsible for electron transport rather than working with the main active layer. The work has been published in the journal Advanced Functional Materials.
An international research group including ITMO University specialists has experimentally demonstrated a method of generating complex nanoparticles that can be applied in nanophotonics for light adjustment purposes. It has the potential to change the way such materials are produced today and reduce the price of nanoparticle production, which would foster the development of microelectronics. The paper was published in Advanced Functional Materials.
ITMO University’s Master's students Vladislav Slabov and Kirill Keller talk about the role of inkjet printing methods in their new research. The scientists have created a way to not only print chromatic holograms on any surface but also to create high-quality organic piezoelectric structures. The results of their research were published in Advanced Functional Materials and Applied Materials & Interfaces.
