Next-Gen Semi Materials Could Be a Boost for Photovoltaics, Lighting

Next-generation semiconducting materials have the potential to transform lighting technology and photovoltaics, suggest researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), in a study of the unusual physics behind hybrid semiconductors. Semiconductors made with emerging materials can engage the material itself in quantum actions, according to the team. Such a material’s ability to contain diverse quantum particle movements is related to its extreme flexibility on a molecular level. Semiconductors made with traditional materials, in contrast, have rigid molecular structures. The researchers studied the light-emission properties of a class of hybrid semiconductors called halide organic-inorganic perovskites (HOIPs). They found that the excitonic properties in HOIPs were diverse and that each excitonic resonance had a distinct degree of polaronic character.
