Frontiers in Nanotechnology Seminar Series Presents Aditya D. Mohite, Rice University
“Shaping the Future: The Rise of Two-Dimensional Halide Perovskites in Solar Energy and Photonics”
Join us for an enlightening lecture by Aditya D. Mohite, a distinguished speaker from the Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at Rice University. This session is tailored for postdoctoral researchers and PhD students specializing in nanotechnology. Professor Mohite will explore the fascinating realm of two-dimensional (2D) halide perovskites, a unique subset of 3D perovskites that have emerged as innovative solution-processed organic-inorganic low-dimensional semiconductors.
The lecture will explore the intricate interplay between organic cations and inorganic frameworks, unveiling the potential to customize their behaviors. Over the past five years, Mohite’s research has unraveled novel light-induced structural behaviors, solvation dynamics, and the synergistic integration of 2D and 3D perovskites. Discover how these advancements have paved the way for durable and high-efficiency photovoltaic devices, and get a sneak peek into exciting prospects for developing arrays of electrically driven single photon emitters.
Don’t miss this opportunity to gain insights into the forefront of nanotechnology research!
