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.
Every year, the December issue of Optics & Photonics News includes a list of the year’s 30 most impactful studies in the field of optics and photonics. This year, it features research by scientists from ITMO University who have succeeded in demonstrating record-breaking efficiency in light coupling at large incidence angles. ITMO.NEWS spoke to Oleh Yermakov, one of the authors of the study and a researcher at the university’s Faculty of Physics, to find out how the team plans to develop their research in the future.
Optics & Photonics News journal has recognised a recent study on three-dimensional topological insulators as one of the year’s most promising advances in photonics. These structures are capable of controlling light without any losses caused by absorption and defects of material, showing great potential for application in communication networks, antennas and optical computers.
