  1. Energetic Barriers to Interfacial Charge Transfer and Ion Movement in Perovskite Solar Cells

    Ionic movement: Application of a forward bias to the cell leads to ion movement. Decreasing bias voltage is expected to reduce the current; however, the ion current results in an overall increase in measured current. Below the threshold voltage for ion movement typical diode behavior is observed even though this increases the depletion layer and concomitantly decreases the charge concentration, charge extraction, and charge recombination.

  2. Capturing the Unconventional Metallofullerene M@C66 by Trifluoromethylation: A Theoretical Study

    Dan Xu, Prof. Dr. Zhiyong Wang and Prof. Dr. Hisanori Shinohara

    The stability of fullerenes: The otherwise unstable, missing metallofullerenes M@C66 are stabilized through exohedral functionalization. DFT calculations show that mono- or poly-trifluoromethylation of M@C66 results in derivatives with closed-shell configurations and large HOMO–LUMO gaps. Thus, the possibility of capturing M@C66 in this way is theoretically demonstrated.

  3. Ultrathin Colloidal Quantum Dot Films for Optical Amplification: The Role of Modal Confinement and Heat Dissipation

    Dr. Weon-kyu Koh, Dr. Jaesoong Lee, Dr. Kyung-Sang Cho and Dr. Young-Geun Roh

    Version of Record online: 21 SEP 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201700726

    Ultrathin colloidal quantum dot films show optical amplification with the assistance of a TiO2 waveguide as a high refractive index layer. The calculated mode shape provides an understanding of the role of the modal confinement factor for the QD/TiO2 structures, explaining their lower threshold energy with more efficient spontaneous emission.
