Special Issue "Progress in Inorganic Halide Perovskites"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2020.
Interests: high resolution optical spectroscopy; semiconductor nanostructures; excitons; photonics
In the last decade, a significant effort of research in physics and chemistry has been directed at the development and study of halide perovskites. These materials are definitely one of the most promising classes of semiconductors for applications in the field of renewables, photonics, and high radiation detection. Most of the recent literature focuses on hybrid organic–inorganic perovskites which have already demonstrated impressive performances in energy-harvesting applications. Nevertheless, hybrid perovskites suffer from poor material stability, and in the last few years, research has moved toward exploring the potentialities of their more stable inorganic counterparts.
This Special Issue will provide a timely opportunity to present recent progress in the field of inorganic halide perovskites with a focus on innovative devices, in addition to solar cells, as LED, lasers, gas sensors, radiation detectors, etc. Contributions dedicated to advancement in the field of high-performance devices and fundamental research are welcome. In particular, we invite submission of papers addressing issues related to material synthesis, with a focus on ecofriendly perovskites, state-of-the-art morphological, structural, and optical studies, nonlinear optical properties, transport properties, etc.

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. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1800 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.
