Clues from defect photochemistry

Nature Materialsvolume 17pages383384 (2018) | Download Citation

Charge carriers in metal halide perovskites seem to be only marginally affected by defect-related trap states. Filippo De Angelis and Annamaria Petrozza suggest that the key to this behaviour lies in the redox chemistry of halide defects.
