On 16th December, Prof. Bo Wu from South China Normal University visited IAPME and gave a talk on “The Photophysics of Halide Perovskite Single Crystals”. Halide Perovskites have gained widespread attention due to their high potential in optoelectronic applications from solar cells, light-emitting diodes, lasers to photodetectors. In his talk, he gave a brief introduction to his group’s recent progress in understanding the photophysics of perovskite large-scale single crystals based on spectroscopy characterizations as well as theoretical simulations, e.g., the electron-phonon interactions, dynamical Rashba splitting, and photon-recycling effects.

Prof. Wu Bo obtained his bachelor degree from Beijing Normal University in 2009 and Ph.D. degree from Nanyang Technological University in 2014. Now he is a professor in the South China Academy of Advanced Optoelectronics, South China Normal University. His research interest is using spectroscopies and ultrafast spectroscopies to uncover the physical mechanisms of optoelectronic materials and devices, e.g., perovskite solar cells and light-emitting diodes, organic solar cells, etc. Till now, he has published more than 40 papers in high-impact journals such as Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, Advanced Functional Materials, ACS Nano, etc. He has also published a book on plasmonic organic solar cells and a book chapter on perovskite single crystals in Springer and Wiley, respectively.
