Glassification could stabilise Perovskite light emitters

Lead (Pb) halide perovskites, known for fledgling solar cell technology, can also emit light. The materials are generally unstable in the moisture of the atmosphere, deteriorating over hours or days. But researchers in Australia have maintained ~80% of emission despite 10,000 hours of water immersion. Although this was a photo-luminescence proof-of-concept – emitting light when ...
