Twisted Perovskites - Control of Spin and Chirality in Highly-luminescent Metal-halide Perovskites

Project description

Metal-halide perovskites for better opto-spintronic applications

The optoelectronic properties of semiconductors are controlled by charge, but magnetic materials function by spin. Combining these functionalities may result in powerful novel applications and large gains in performance in opto-spintronics. The challenge of developing a new system lies in the coordination of spins and control of physical properties of excited states. The EU-funded TWIST project aims to demonstrate novel, highly luminescent semiconductors for spin-control and chiral emission with combined properties of ferromagnets and excellent semiconductors for efficient spin-LEDs at room temperature. TWIST will develop new approaches to control spin and chirality in doped metal-halide perovskites with magnetic elements and molecules, as well as in chiral superstructures. The results of TWIST will instigate opto-spintronic applications with novel functionality and lower energy consumption.
