Perovskite and perovskite-related nanocrystals are attractive materials for optoelectronics due to their bandgap tunability, high photoluminescence, and high defect tolerance. Heterostructured nanocrystals, including core/shell and Janus nanocrystals, offer the opportunity to optimize/alter the optoelectronic properties and the stability of the nanocrystals. The PhD candidate will work on the development of perovskite-based heterostructured nanocrystals with the aim of accessing new features beyond what the individual components can offer. The structural, morphological, and photophysical properties of these heterostructures will be studied in detail, and they will then be tested for optoelectronic applications in light emitting diodes, and in concentrators for solar cells.
The ideal candidate must have a Bachelor’s/Master’s Degree in one of the following areas: Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry, or equivalent.
