BUSAN, South Korea, Jan. 4, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Perovskite materials are still attracting a lot of interest in solar cell applications. Now, the nanostructures of perovskite materials are being considered as a new laser medium. Over the years, light amplification in perovskite quantum dots has been reported, but most of the works present inadequate quantitative analysis. To assess the light amplification ability, "gain coefficient" is necessary, whereby the essential characteristic of a laser medium is revealed. An efficient laser medium is one that has a large gain.

Key Points: 
  • Over the years, light amplification in perovskite quantum dots has been reported, but most of the works present inadequate quantitative analysis.
  • Now, in a recent study, a team of researchers, led by Professor Kwangseuk Kyhm from Pusan National University in Korea, has managed to enhance signal amplification in perovskite nanosheets of CsPbBr3 with a unique waveguide pattern.
  • Prof. Kyhm explains: "Perovskite nanosheets can be a new laser medium, and this work has demonstrated that light amplification can be achieved based on tiny perovskite nanosheets that are synthesized chemically."
  • Title of original paper: Gain enhancement of perovskite nanosheets by a patterned waveguide: excitation and temperature dependence of gain saturation
