Metal-Halide Perovskite submicrometer-thick films for ultra-stable self-powered direct X-ray detectors

Metal halide perovskites (MHP) have revolutionised the world of solar energy conversion, thanks to the development of high-efficiency and low-cost photovoltaic cells. But their potential goes far beyond that. The outstanding electric and optoelectronic properties of MHPs allowed indeed for the development of ultra-sensitive, portable and low-power X-ray detectors, based...
