Two-dimensional organic-inorganic hybrid perovskites (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

Semiconductor quantum wells and superlattices, which are usually fabricated through metal-organic chemical vapor deposition or molecular beam epitaxy, are key building blocks in modern optoelectronics. The ability to simultaneously realize defect-free epitaxial growth and to individually fine-tune the chemical composition and band structure of each layer is essential for achieving the desired performance. Such structures are challenging to realize using organic or hybrid materials because of the difficulty of controlling the materials growth. In this talk, I will present a molecular approach to the synthesis of high-quality organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite quantum wells through incorporating widely tunable organic semiconducting building blocks. By introducing sterically tailored groups into the molecular motif, the strong self-aggregation of the conjugated organic molecules can be suppressed, and single crystalline organic-perovskite hybrid quantum wells (down to one mono-layer thick) and superlattices can be easily obtained via one-step solution-processing. Energy transfer and charge transfer between adjacent organic and inorganic layers are extremely fast and efficient, owing to the atomically-flat interface and ultra-small interlayer distance. The 2D hybrid perovskite superlattices are surprisingly stable, due to the protection of the bulky hydrophobic organic groups. Finally, we demonstrate the applications of these materials in high performance solar cells and field effect transistors.
