Recent discoveries have revealed a breakthrough in the photovoltaic field using organometal perovskites as light harvesters in the solar cell. The power conversion efficiencies of perovskite based solar cells has increased dramatically in the last three years; the functionality of these cells has also increased in other optoelectronic applications. It can be argued that this material can replace current solar cell technologies.
This Special Issue is expected to cover topics related to perovskite based solar cells and the function of perovskite in optoelectronic applications, with an emphasis on fundamental understandings of the mechanisms and methods of perovskite deposition, and of optical and physical characterizations.
The papers in this Special Issue will provide knowledge on this novel material and its properties, which will contribute to the understanding of this exciting topic.

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. Photonics 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.
