Hybrid perovskite materials could enable wavelength-tuneable lasers
Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the PERICLeS project plans to develop a semiconductor laser from hybrid organic–inorganic perovskites. The new laser with high wavelength tuneability and low lasing threshold will represent a breakthrough in the field and have a major impact on communications, sensing, medicine and consumer equipment applications. The project's activities will cover the synthesis of multidimensional perovskites that are flexible and solution-processed while also having a high quantum yield and good charge transport properties. The newly engineered materials will be integrated in laser cavities to confine the electromagnetic field and achieve high Q factors with excellent control over the spatial and spectral characteristics of the laser beam.
