The Johnston Group is a research group within the sub-department of Condensed Matter Physics, which is part of the sub-faculty of Physics at the University of Oxford. Our current research may be divided into three themes (i) Semiconductor nanowires (ii) Terahertz photonic technologies and (iii) Vapour deposited Perovskite materials for photovoltaic applications.

Impurity Tracking Enables Enhanced Control and Reproducibility of Hybrid Perovskite Vapor Deposition
Borchert et al. ACS Appl. Mater. Interfaces, 0:0 (Aug 2019)
[ pdf ][ DOI:10.1021/acsami.9b07619 ]
Our results indicate that as long as precursor deposition rates are well controlled, physical vapor deposition will allow high solar cell device yields even if the purity of precursors changes from one run to another.

Bimolecular recombination in methylammonium lead triiodide perovskite is an inverse absorption process
Davies et al. Nat. Commun., 9:293 (Jan 2018)
[ pdf ][ DOI:10.1038/s41467-017-02670-2 ]
We show that bimolecular charge-carrier recombination in methylammonium lead triiodide perovskite can be fully explained as the inverse process of absorption.
