Georgia Tech researchers "have shed some new light on perovskite-based semiconductors that suggest they are quite unlike established semiconductors that rely upon rigidly stable chemical foundations. The researchers were looking at hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites (HOIPs) and discovered that semiconducting physics created what could be described as electrons dancing on chemical underpinnings that wobble like a funhouse floor in an earthquake." School of Chemistry and Biochemistry Professor Carlos Silva and Ph.D. student Felix Thouin talk about the new physics that could have applications in lasers, LEDs, lighting applications, and photovoltaics. Their study was published in Physical Review Materials.
