Overview

"The nanoIR is a powerful tool because it can characterize the heterogeneity of a solution."

Dr. Centrone at NIST applied AFM-IR to characterize organometal trihallide perovskites for photovoltaic production. His team used inorganic semiconductors with higher efficiency, materials with lower cost, and an easier fabrication process. They have seen unprecedented improvements in efficiency in recent years thanks to nanoIR.

Webinar Topics

  • Applications of AFM-IR on a variety of materials and life science samples
  • Nanoscale IR spectroscopy for perovskite solar cell research

    • Direct evidence of ion electron migration
    • Mapping chemical composition and bandgap distribution
