Scientists at the Los Alamos National Laboratory recently published a study on the viability of 2D layered hybrid perovskites and their application to LED and solar technology. These "Ruddlesden-Popper" thin films are relatively cheap and easy to manufacture. The team discovered that the material's "layer-edge-states...are key to both high efficiency of solar cells and high fluorescence efficiency for LEDs" as described in a press release.
