Perovskite radiation detectors

Professor Paul Sellin leads a research team working on perovskite materials for radiation detection applications. We study the fundamental electrical and optical properties of perovskite materials and their interaction with radiation, and we assess their performance as radiation detectors in application areas such as medical imaging, environmental monitoring, and nuclear security.


Organic and inorganic perovskites are widely used in applications such as solar cells and LED lighting. Perovskites have exciting potential for radiation detection as they have a high sensitivity for X-ray and gamma ray detection both as semiconductors and scintillators.
