Our New Paper has been Selected as Editor’s Choice

There is an overwhelming selection of optimal species and processing conditions to fabricate hybrid organic-inorganic perovskite (HOIP) thin films via solution processing. This makes it attractive to use computational methods to narrow our search to those species that produce high quality films. Our new paper, led by Ford Fellow Blaire Sorenson, provides Continue Reading
