Organic lead halide perovskites have been established as promising materials for a variety of optoelectronic applications. Characteristics including a tunable near optimal bandgap, long carrier diffusion lengths, significant absorption of the visible range, and high carrier mobility and low cost. In this poster, we demonstrate the results of the synthesis of lead bromide and lead chloride perovskite single crystals by employing the Modified Inverse Temperature Crystallization technique. Additionally, we describe radiation effects on the material. We believe elucidation of these interactions will open new avenues for perovskites research.
