Atomic structure of metal-halide perovskites from first principles: The chicken-and-egg paradox of the organic-inorganic interaction

Jingrui's paper about the atomic structure of hybrid perovskites for photovoltaic applications just appeared as Physical Review B 94, 045201 (2016)

Our paper "Atomic structure of metal-halide perovskites from first principles: The chicken-and-egg paradox of the organic-inorganic interaction" is now available in Physical Review B (http://journals.aps.org/prb/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevB.94.045201). We use density-functional theory to study the atomic structure of several hybrid perovskite materials. We identify two stable structures and analyse them in terms of organic-inorganic and van der Waals interactions. The stable structures result from a delicate interplay between the position of the organic cation and the deformation of the inorganic framework like in the chicken-and-egg paradox.

Volunteer as a Publication Forum (JUFO) panellist!

Julkaisufoorumi (JUFO, the Publication Forum) is appointing new panels for the term 2022-2025. The panels are responsible for the ranking of publication channels, mainly journals and conference series. This ranking is used in the funding model of the Ministry of Education and Culture. It is thus important that all publication channels are correctly ranked. We are now looking for volunteers for all fields relevant to Aalto.
