A National Science Foundation supported process developed by Rice University chemical and biomolecular engineer Aditya Mohite and collaborators at Northwestern University, the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Rennes has yielded 2D perovskite-based semiconductor layers of ideal thickness and purity. This has been achieved using a new process- kinetically controlled space confinement- by controlling the temperature and duration of the crystallization process. The new process could help improve the stability and reduce the cost of halide-perovskite-based emerging technologies.
