Materials

A collection of active and interface materials for a variety of innovative thin film electronic devices from photovoltaics to LEDs to transistors and sensors.


Fullerenes and Derivatives

Fullerene's (carbon bucky balls) and solublised derivatives for use as electron acceptors in OPV and n-type interfaces to perovskites. See our explanation of terminology for why some people count and extra carbon (e.g. PC60BM instead of PC61BM).

PEDOT:PSS

PEDOT:PSS is an intrinsically doped material making it semi-metallic. Ideal as a hole interface material for a wide variety of devices such as OLED, OPV and perovskite due to it's planerisation properies and work function (typically around -5 eV). Also useful as a gate for OFETs or as an ITO alternative. Supplied as colloidal suspension in water (or water + additives).

Perovskite Precursor Materials

Precursor materials for forming perovskite thin films for photovoltaic and OLED purposes.

Formamidinium Bromide (FABr)

From £129

Formamidinium Bromide (FABr)

Formamidinium bromide (FABr), is used mainly as a perovskite precusor material for FAPbBr3 or a range of formamidinium lead bromide-iodide mixed halide perovskites (FAPbIyBr3-y). FAPbBr3 material, having an energy bandgap of 2.23 eV, makes it an ideal candidate for tandem solar cell applications as well.


Formamidinium Iodide (FAI)

From £96

Formamidinium Iodide (FAI)

Formamidinium lead iodide shows a narrower bandgap than the commonly used methylammonium lead iodide (1.48 eV compared to ~1.57 eV), and hence lies closer to that favourable for optimum solar conversion efficiencies. With an approach of FAPbI3 crystallisation by the direct intramolecular exchange of dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) molecules intercalated in PbI2 with formamidinium iodide, device with performance over 20% has been fabricated.


Lead Chloride

From £149

Lead Chloride

High purity (99.999%) lead chloride suitable for fabricating perovskite solar cells.


MAI (Methylammonium Iodide)

From £53.30

MAI (Methylammonium Iodide)

Methylammonium iodide (MAI) is a precursor for the synthesis of organic-inorganic hybrid perovskites for use in FETs, LEDs and PVs. Due to the high purity of the methylammonium iodide (99.99%) it should be noted that there is a reduced solubility within dimethyl formamide and dimethyl sulfoxide. The reduced solubility is due to the removal of trace amounts of residual hydroiodic...


Methylammonium bromide (MABr)

From £89

Methylammonium bromide (MABr)

Methylammonium bromide (MABr) is the precursor of MAPbBr3 perovskites. Having a bandgap of 2.3 eV (HOMO 5.68 eV, LUMO 3.38 eV) [1], MAPbBr3 perovskites has been used to tune the bandgap of mixed MAPbX3 (where X is the halide I, Br and/or Cl mixtures).
