About the webinar
This webinar will summarize work being done at the Thomas Lord Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at Duke University, Durham, NC, on collecting curated materials data for hybrid organic-inorganic semiconductor (HOIS) materials, particularly those associated with the perovskite paradigm.
Hybrid perovskites, which incorporate both inorganic and organic components in well-defined crystalline lattices, have been studied for almost five decades and experienced a "run" since one member of this family became a widely studied photovoltaic material in 2009. The overall HOIS materials space is broad, extendable, and contains opportunities for applications including photovoltaics, light emission, spin properties of carriers and of emitted light, superfluorescence and lasing, catalysis and many other fields.
The webinar discusses the group's work on the "HybriD3" materials database of HOIS materials and their properties, aimed to cover any relevant, reproducibly measurable material property including context such as sample type, synthesis information, and experimental or computational details.
One key challenge associated with materials databases is longevity of data. In the HybriD3 database, this problem is addressed by working closely with SpringerMaterials to incorporate the HybriD3 data into SpringerMaterials' database, offering a degree of sustainability and integration into a large, high quality curated and long-lived materials data collection that a single team or even university setting cannot reach on its own.
The webinar will be delivered by Volker Blum, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and of Chemistry at Duke University, Durham, NC and Rayan Chakraborty, Thomas Lord Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science, Duke University, Durham, NC. It will be co-hosted by SpringerMaterials product managers Sharon George, Antonio Montes and Michael Klinge.
