ACCESS HIGHLIGHT AT CELIA: Distant study of electronic dynamics in caesium-lead and organolead halide perovskites

Luminescence spectra and kinetics as a function of excitation density were investigated for a series of halide perovskites using a luminescence z-scan technique in the temperature range from LHeT to RT. Thanks to the scientific expertise of the CELIA group and previous experience of the Russian team at the host facility the experiments could be performed remotely.
