Special Issue "Hybrid Organic–Inorganic Perovskites: Current Status and Future Perspectives"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2017
Hybrid organic–inorganic perovskites triggered an impressive excitement in the field of photovoltaics since the first evidence of efficient use of MAPbI3 as absorber in 2009. The search for new materials and photovoltaics cell architectures pushed the efficiency of perovskite-based solar cells to 22.1% in 2016. At the same time, analogous materials and new fully inorganic perovskites were shown to be excellent candidates for optical applications, such as light-emitting diodes and lasers. All these experimental achievements, together with theoretical modelling, opened several questions and concerns that still need to be solved, such as the long-term stability of perovskite solar cells, the presence of toxic lead, the ion migration issue, etc. The actual state-of-the-art, on both device design and materials chemistry, is quite mature, but efforts should be made in order to solve the above-mentioned, and other issues. Other important aspects to be considered are the characterization methods of solar cell performance and the fundamental physical and chemical properties of these materials. This Special Issue aims at collecting papers that review the actual status and future directions of hybrid organic–inorganic perovskites topic, from both basic and applied points of view, as well research papers reporting new achievements in this field.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Inorganics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
