Our work on “Extremely efficient internal exciton dissociation through edge states in layered 2D perovskites” published in Science last year (2017) is highlighted in the French CNRS annual report of 2017. We thank our French collaborators Prof. Jacky Even & Dr. Laurent Pedesseau (INSA Rennes), and Dr. Claudine Katan & Dr. Mikael Kepenekian (Institut des sciences chimiques de Rennes). This work was also performed in collaboration with the teams of Prof. Mercouri Kanatzidis (Northwestern University) and Dr. Matthew Sfeir (Brookhaven Nat. Lab.).
Congratulations to Dr. Jean-Christophe Blancon for winning the very prestigious Young Scientist award presented by the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) for his outstanding contribution to the photo-physics of Halide Hybrid Perovskites. He was awarded the price at the International Conference on the Physics of Semiconductors conference (ICPS) held in Montpellier, France.

We welcome Siraj Sidhik, an exchange student from Mexico and an expert in making solar cells to our group for one year !
We are a multidisciplinary and collaborative research team with the overarching goal to establish structure-function relationships by understanding and advancing the fundamental knowledge rooted in the physics, chemistry and engineering of next generation materials for optoelectronics, sustainable, energy conversion, quantum computing, sensing and environmental preservation. Our philosophy is to develop creative and out-of-the-box approaches to solve fundamental scientific problems and apply this knowledge to demonstrate technologically relevant performance in devices on par or exceeding the current state-of-the-art devices.
To achieve our goals, we have established unique correlated and in-situ capabilities with unprecedented resolution in energy, space and time coupled with external stimuli such as temperature, fields and environments thus allowing for the investigation of properties from the nanoscale to the macroscale, critical for the integration of materials into technologically relevant platforms.
