Trojans That Flip the Black Phase: Impurity-Driven Stabilization and Spontaneous Strain Suppression in γ-CsPbI3 Perovskite.

Quantified assessment of the symmetry-adapted strains which are introduced due to changes in temperature and composition show that the stability of γ-CsPbI3 is best rationalized from the point of view of crystal symmetry.

Controlling the Phase Transition in CsPbI3 Nanowires.

Cesium lead iodide (CsPbI3) is a promising semiconductor with a suitable band gap for optoelectronic devices. CsPbI3 has a metastable perovskite phase that undergoes a phase transition into an

Phase transition dynamics in one-dimensional halide perovskite crystals

Triiodide perovskites $${\rm CsPbI}_{3}$$ , $${\rm CsSnI}_{3}$$ , and $${\rm FAPbI}_{3}$$ (where FA is formamidinium) are highly promising materials for a range of optoelectronic applications in

Nanoscale Heterogeneity in CsPbBr3 and CsPbBr3:KI Perovskite Films Revealed by Cathodoluminescence Hyperspectral Imaging

The nanoscale morphology of solar cell materials strongly affects their performance. We report direct evidence for the existence of multiple length scales of heterogeneity in halide perovskites such

Photoinduced phase separation in the lead halides is a polaronic effect.

Empirical observations of robustness rule out explanations based on specific defect structures and point to the local modulation of an existing miscibility phase transition in the presence of excess charge carriers.

Understanding phase transition dynamics paves the way to halide perovskites nanoelectronics

Learning intermolecular forces at liquid-vapor interfaces.

By adopting a perspective informed by contemporary liquid-state theory, this work considers how to train an artificial neural network potential to describe inhomogeneous, disordered systems and finds that models with explicit electrostatics are easier to train and have higher accuracy.

Tunable Polaron Distortions Control the Extent of Halide Demixing in Lead Halide Perovskites.

This work investigates the nanoscale photoinduced behavior of single-crystal mixed Br-/I- methylammonium (MA+) lead halide perovskite (MAPb(Br xI1- x)3) nanoplates, finding that phase separation occurs, resulting in I--rich clusters that are nucleated stochastically and stabilized by polarons.

Origin of Reversible Photoinduced Phase Separation in Hybrid Perovskites.

It is proposed that the localized strain induced by a single photoexcited charge interacting with the soft, ionic lattice is sufficient to promote halide phase separation and nucleate a light-stabilized, low-bandgap, ∼8 nm iodide-rich cluster.

Atomic scale insights into structure instability and decomposition pathway of methylammonium lead iodide perovskite

It is found that MAPbI3 is very sensitive to the electron beam illumination and rapidly decomposes into the hexagonal PbI2, and a decomposition pathway is proposed, initiated with the loss of iodine ions, resulting in eventual collapse of perovskite structure and its decomposition into P bI2.

Phase-transition–induced p-n junction in single halide perovskite nanowire

The formation of the current-rectifying p-n heterojunction in single-crystalline CsSnI3 nanowires via localized phase transition between the n-type yellow and p-type black phases is reported.

Intrinsic anion diffusivity in lead halide perovskites is facilitated by a soft lattice

Direct visualization of halide anion interdiffusion in CsPbCl3–CsPbBr3 single crystalline perovskite nanowire heterojunctions using wide-field and confocal photoluminescence measurements allows for the direct measuring of intrinsic lattice diffusivities.

Quantitative Phase-Change Thermodynamics and Metastability of Perovskite-Phase Cesium Lead Iodide.

It is shown herein that the metastable state is maintained in the absence of moisture, up to a temperature of 100 °C, and a reversible phase-change enthalpy of 14.2 (±0.5) kJ/mol is observed.

Revealing the detailed path of sequential deposition for metal halide perovskite formation

This study identifies the presence of mixed crystalline aggregates composed of perovskite and lead iodide during intercalation and structural reorganization and finds that the Avrami models best represent them.

Defect-induced local variation of crystal phase transition temperature in metal-halide perovskites

It is proposed that upon cooling from 160 to 140 K, domains of the crystal containing fewer defects stay in the tetragonal phase longer than highly defected domains that readily transform to the high bandgap orthorhombic phase at higher temperatures.

Semiconducting tin and lead iodide perovskites with organic cations: phase transitions, high mobilities, and near-infrared photoluminescent properties.

It is found that the chemical and physical properties of these materials strongly depend on the preparation method, and the properties of the title hybrid materials with those of the "all-inorganic" CsSnI3 and CsPbI3 prepared using identical synthetic methods.
