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.
