Special Issue "Hybrid Perovskite Thin Film"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 5 March 2021.
Interests: organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite thin film and its applications
Interests: thin film growth; organic electronic materials & devices (solar cells, organic light emitting diode, detectors); surface & interface science
Interests: flexible and wearable electronics; synthesis of aligned nano-carbon materials assembly; energy materials for clean energy conversion and storage; surface/interface science of charge transport in photovoltaic devices; scalable chemical vapor deposition of perovskite films for photovoltaic modules
Organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite materials (OHP, AMX3, where A is organic or inorganic cation, M is metal cation, and X is a halogen anion) show considerable potential for solar cell and light-emitting diode applications. In solar cell applications, the power conversion efficiency is already over 25%, which is highly competitive in comparison with CdTe (22.1%), CIGS (22.6%), and Si (25.4%). To overcome the weakness of OHP materials, such as material instability, many researchers are focusing on studying instability origins, stable compounds, defect structures, and multi-functional hole transport layer (good hole mobility and water protection). This work is proceeding to engineering optimization now. However, its fundamental properties in thin films such as defects, phonon dispersion, and electronic structure are not fully understood, which is why many researchers are still attempting to improve its weakness in actual devices.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials, “Hybrid Perovskite Thin Film”, will be focused on (1) thin film fabrication; (2) basic characterizations with atomic, chemical, and electronic structures; (3) defects and their effects; and (4) suggesting possible new application using OHP materials.

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. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2200 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.
