Paper Title: Perovskite seeding growth of formamidinium-lead- iodide-based perovskites for
efficient and stable solar cells.
Abstract: Formamidinium-lead-iodide (FAPbI3)-based perovskites with bandgap below 1.55 eV are
of interest for photovoltaics in view of their close-to-ideal bandgap. Record-perf...

Paper title: Bright colloidal quantum dot light-emitting diodes enabled by efficient chlorination
Abstract: The external quantum efficiencies of state-of-the-art colloidal quantum dot light-emitting
diodes (QLEDs) are now approaching the limit set by the out-coupling efficiency. However, the
Our wide-band-gap perovskite solar cell paper just got published in Advanced Materials. Congratulations Junghwan and Makhsud!

Title: Amide-Catalyzed Phase-Selective Crystallization Reduces Defect Density in Wide-Bandgap
Abstract: Wide-bandgap (WBG) formamidinium–cesium (FA-Cs) lead iodide–bromide mixed
perovskites are promising materials for front cells well-matched with crystalline silicon to form
