Perovskite Halides: Spontaneously Emerging Crystal Arrangements from Defects to Order

This article from India Education Diary explores the study of defect-ordered layered halide perovskites, particularly focusing on how spontaneous crystal arrangements can emerge from defects. Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology found that by manipulating the concentration of thiocyanate ion in the crystal lattice of specific perovskites, they could control defect ordering and influence the material’s optical properties. This breakthrough reveals a new method for engineering defects in hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites, potentially impacting future materials used in various technologies.
