Luis A. Lanzetta

Postdoctoral Fellows


Research Interests

Luis' research interests cover the fundamental properties of lead-free hybrid perovskites (i.e. doping, degradation, thermal transport) and the development of optoelectronic applications based on these materials such as solar cells, LEDs and retinomorphic sensors.
