At the 5th International Conference on Perovskite Solar Cells and Optoelectronics (PSCO-19) Dr. Götz Schuck received a prize for his poster contribution. The international conference took place from 30.09.2019 to 02.10.2019 in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Halide Perovskites are outstanding candidates for extremely efficient and yet cost-effective solar cells. In the most studied perovskite variant, the lattice sites of a perovskite structure are occupied by the halide element iodine, the metal lead and the organic molecule methylammonium. But what happens when iodine is replaced by chlorine?

Götz Schuck investigated this question using neutron scattering experiments and other methods. He presented the results on his poster titled "Influence of chloride substitution on the rotational dynamics of methylammonium in MAPb(I,Cl)3 perovskites".

"This award shows the high quality of Götz Schuck's research on the dynamic structure of halide perovskites", says Prof. Dr. Susan Schorr, head of the department Structure and Dynamics of Energy Materials. At the conference 150 posters have been presented, 7 of which were awarded with a poster prize.

    BESSY II: How pulsed charging enhances the service time of batteries
    An improved charging protocol might help lithium-ion batteries to last much longer. Charging with a high-frequency pulsed current reduces ageing effects, an international team demonstrated. The study was led by Philipp Adelhelm (HZB and Humboldt University) in collaboration with teams from the Technical University of Berlin and Aalborg University in Denmark. Experiments at the X-ray source BESSY II were particularly revealing.

    Fuel Cells: Oxidation processes of phosphoric acid revealed by tender X-rays
    The interactions between phosphoric acid and the platinum catalyst in high-temperature PEM fuel cells are more complex than previously assumed. Experiments at BESSY II with tender X-rays have decoded the multiple oxidation processes at the platinum-electrolyte interface. The results indicate that variations in humidity can influence some of these processes in order to increase the lifetime and efficiency of fuel cells.
