This figure depicts the organic semiconductor, in this case P3HT:PCBM in red, with a 2D MoS2 layer on a silver plasmonic metasurface.
This schematic depicts the 2D layer of MoS2 used in research experiments from the Femtosecond Spectroscopy Unit. As seen here, the layer is only three atoms thick, yet demonstrates amazing optical properties.
The schematic drawing showing that various factors (e.g., moisture, oxygen, light illumination, applied electric field, etc.) during the operation of MAPbI3 perovskite solar cells can generate iodine, which leads to degradation of solar cells.

Dr. Yan Jiang holding a freshly made MAPbI3 perovskite solar cell can be seen on the left. MAPbI3 perovskite solar cells degrade, which is marked by a drastic change in color, as seen on the right, held by Dr. Shenghao Wang.
