ERC Starting Grant for Alexander Urban (LMU)

Alexander Urban, Principal Investigator of SolTech at Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU, Munich), has received a Starting Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). His project, entitled PINNACLE, focuses on lead halide-based perovskites, a material with excellent properties for applications in solar energy conversion. The basic idea is to use a new method for the synthesis of perovskite nanocrystals that would improve...
