Enzheng’s review paper entitled “Two-dimensional halide perovskite nanomaterials and heterostructures” has been published in Chemical Society Reviews. Congratulations!
Over the last several years, there has been tremendous progress in the development of nanoscale halide perovskite materials and devices. Particularly, the emerging two-dimensional (2D) forms of halide perovskites are attracting more interest due to the long charge carrier lifetime, high photoluminescence quantum efficiency, and great defect tolerance. Interfacing 2D halide perovskites with other 2D materials including graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) significantly broadens the application range of the 2D materials and enhances the performance of the functional devices. In this article, we review the progress of the above-mentioned topics in a timely manner and discuss the current challenges and future promising directions in this field.
