Metal halide perovskites emerged as multifaceted materials with intriguing properties including excellent charge transport, high luminescence, tunable bandgap, and ferroelectricity. This makes them strong contenders for light-harvesting and light-emitting applications such as photovoltaics, LEDs and other optoelectronic devices. With this symposium we would like to bring together interdisciplinary researchers including chemists, material scientists, physicists, and engineers to discuss opportunities, challenges, and future directions of these extraordinary materials. Topics span the areas of photophysics, interfaces, defects, instabilities, and device applications. Material categories include thin film, low-dimensional, poly- and single crystalline, as well as chemically diverse hybrid perovskites. We highly encourage contributions focused on synthesis, characterization, and theoretical modeling to maximize synergistic effects, capture a holistic picture, and stimulate collaborative efforts.
