Project Description: 
Perovskite materials have recently been attracting great interest for applications in photovoltaics, light emitting diodes and thermoelectric. Despite the rapid development in the field there are still a large number of unanswered questions regarding how their electrical and optical properties are affected by the growth conditions. In this project we will use transient spectroscopy and Hall effect characterisation to investigate the role of growth conditions in order to optimise light emitting devices. Perovskite layers and crystals will be produced by a range of techniques and their optical and electrical properties correlated with their structural behaviour. Material fabrication methods will then be optimised for ligth emitting devices.
