All-Star Nanocrystals

Researchers discovered semiconducting nanocrystals that not only function as stellar light-to-energy converters but also as stable light emitters.  Scientists synthesized a series of perovskite nanocrystals with different morphologies i.e., dots, rods, wires, plates, and sheets.  Perovskite materials such as CH3NH3PbX3 (X = I, Br) are known to display many intriguing electronic light and chemical properties.
