Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Two-dimensional (2D) metal halide perovskites have attracted much attention in recent years due to their promising applications, including in light-emitting diodes (LEDs), solar cells, lasers, and photodetectors. Various chemical methods at ambient conditions have been developed for the synthesis of environmentally stable 2D perovskites with intriguing optoelectronic properties, such as large exciton binding energy, a high photoluminescence quantum yield, and a tuneable bandgap. To achieve these breakthroughs related to novel properties, extreme conditions, such as a high pressure, low temperature, and strong magnetic field, have been introduced into the engineering process. This facilitates researchers in unravelling some of the fundamental photophysical properties of 2D perovskites. This Special Issue covers topics pertaining to the synthesis of novel 2D perovskites and the engineering of optoelectronic properties of 2D perovskites through the application of pressure, strain, changing temperatures, and magnetic fields, in addition to physical-based simulations and calculations of the engineering process. The goal is to achieve a diverse collection of 2D perovskites by using special chemical methods, to realize breakthroughs in the optoelectronic properties of 2D perovskites, to deepen the scientific understanding of the fundamental mechanism between macroscopic properties and microscopic structures, and to expand their practical applications in optoelectronic and photonic devices. Original works combining modelling methods and experimental validation are highly welcome.
