Cutting edges for exciton on hybrid perovskites

(Science 2017) A Franco-American researchers team has elucidated the origin of the remarkable performances of devices based on layered perovskites for photovoltaic and light emission. This is based on the spontaneous conversion of electron-hole pairs, also called excitons, into free charge carriers via specific states located on the edges of the thin films used in the devices (...)

World record for photon capture in micro-resonators

(Physical Review Letters, mar. 2016) The introduction of a slow-light medium in an optical micro-resonator extends the lifetime of a photon circulating in the device by several orders of magnitude.
