Halide Perovskite Nanocrystals Themed Collection guest edited by Lakshminarayana Polavarapu, Qiao Zhang, & Roman Krahne

We are delighted to introduce you to our first themed online collection of 2019, on Halide Perovskite Nanocrystals, guest edited by Lakshminarayana Polavarapu, Qiao Zhang, and Roman Krahne.

Metal halide perovskite nanocrystals (NCs) have emerged as an attractive new class of semiconductor materials owing to their excellent optical and optoelectronic properties. This themed collection across Nanoscale and Nanoscale Advances aims at providing a platform for recent developments in the expanding field of perovskite NCs including shape and composition-controlled synthesis, 2D layered materials, replacement of Pb, post-synthetic metal ion doping, single particle studies, and applications in LEDs, flexible photodetectors, nanorotors, and lasing. Moreover, the scope of this issue loosely aligns with an accompanying symposium that was held at the 2018 Fall E-MRS meeting at the Warsaw University of Technology, from 17-20 September 2018.
